Our oenologists' opinion

Powerful bouquet

Its garnet black color offers an open nose, with notes of roasted plums, nutmeg and blond tobacco. On the palate, this wine presents a velvety and tasty attack, on silky tannins.

Features

Body ? The body is the way a wine feels inside the mouth. Several factors, such as the alcohol content and the presence of tannins, contribute to the feel of the wine.

Freshness ? The freshness of a wine is defined by its level of acidity. Unlike rounded wines, fresh wines are easy to drink, and are more lively. Acidity plays a necessary part in a wine's structure.

Aging ? All wines do not have the same aging potential. Some are supposed to be consumed at a young age while others must be kept for longer periods of time.

Tannins ? Coming from stems, grape pips and their storage barrels, the tannin gives structure to red wines only.

    Built in Saint-Estèphe by the Merman family in the early 19th century, the château is surrounded by vineyards and a 6-hectare park. It took the name of "Château Le Crock" in 1880. In 1903, the Cuvelier family, acquires this property which now has 32 hectares. The castle will become Cru Bourgeois in 1932.

     
     

    • Terroir: The vineyard is planted in a historic land made up of 95% of "graves garonnaises" and 5% of clay.
       
    • Viticulture: Environmentally friendly, vineyard management favors tillage, sexual confusion and fertilization in order to minimize the use of chemicals. The hand harvest begins at the end of September.

After several tasting sessions, the blended takes place during the sixth month of rearing.
