Le Crock is a property that just keeps improving. Owned by the Cuveliers of Chateau Léoville Poyferré for over a century, this is becoming a firm favourite of ours in St Estephe. 2014 was a lovely vintage here and this is immediately attractive. Very pretty fruit on the nose and a great middle which is brilliantly ripe without being over-done - this has real class and there is a poise to the classic northern Medoc structure too. This simply tastes like Claret should. Spicy with dark fruit and yet lovely poise and subtle drive. L&S (Jun 2017)

The 2014 Le Crock is just missing a little detail on the nose: broody, dark berry fruit, hints of graphite but it is missing some charm. The palate is medium-bodied with suppler tannin than its peers. There is plenty of tobacco and spice tinged black fruit with clove and white pepper towards the finish, but overall I would be seeking more precision. Tasted blind at the annual Southwold tasting.

Graphite nose with some polish. Then dry tannins. But it’s very St-Estèphe. Drinking range: 2023 - 2034 Rating: 16 Jancis Robinson MW OBE - www.JancisRobinson.com(Feb 2018)
