CHATEAU LE CROCK SAINT ESTEPHE | 750ML

RegionClare Valley 54% / Limestone Coast 46%
ColourAt release, the wine is a dark red with an intense purple hue.
NoseThe wine has distinct aromas of black cherries and ripe strawberries abound with secondary spice, sweet mocha and cigar box characters evident.
PalateAt release, this wine is medium to full-bodied with lush red berry, plum and cherry fruit characters. The fruit flavours are balanced by undertones of creamy mocha, spice & subtle savoury characters. The palate has a soft, velvety texture with grainy tannins through the mid-palate and a long, persistence to finish.
Oak MaturationThe wine was matured in a mixture of French & American oak barrels for a period of 6 months before being blended & bottled.
Cellaring NotesCrafted for immediate enjoyment but will cellar over a medium term under ideal conditions.

 

  • Owned since 1903 by the Cuvelier family who also owns Léoville Poyferré.

    Critic tasting note: “This wine is structured and dense, with dusty tannins as well as full-bodied black-plum flavors. Made by the winemaking team of Château Léoville-Poyferré in Saint-Julien, the wine has good aging potential. Drink from 2023. Roger Voss” – 93/100Wine Enthusiast
