Tasting Notes and Scores

89-91

Wine Advocate

The 2021 Le Crock offers up aromas of sweet berries, plums and cherries mingled with hints of rose petal, tobacco leaf and pencil shavings. Medium-bodied, ample and charming, it's a supple, open wine with a pretty core of fruit and melting tannins, concluding with a penetrating finish. Unusually, Cabernet Sauvignon dominates the blend at fully 58%, with Merlot down to a mere 25%. It's a solid effort from the Cuvelier family, proprietors of Léoville-Poyferré. Tasted three times.

Antonio Galloni

The 202 Le Crock is a very pretty, vibrant Saint-Estèphe. Crushed red berry fruit, wild flowers, mint, spice and blood orange are all laced together. Bright acids and lifted floral notes perk up the finish. In 2021, Le Crock is a touch lithe, but that is not at all a critique. This mid-weight Saint-Estèphe is a real charmer.

Plenty of tannic width and power on display, good St Estèphe character, if harking back a little to the years when this appellation was full of body and fruit but with rusticity. Good quality though, with blueberry and blackberry fruits, full of flavour. Not frost here but still poor fruit set that meant overall yield of 31hl/h. Harvest September 27 to October 8.
