An exceptional Cru Bourgeois from Saint-Estephe

The estate

Located within the Saint-Estephe appellation and built at the beginning of the 19th century, Chateau Le Crock was acquired in 1804 by the Cuvelier family, who also owns the Leoville Poyferre and Moulin Riche chateaux. Since 2018, Sara Lecompte Cuvelier has been at the head of this estate on the left bank of Bordeaux, renowned for the quality of its wines as a Cru Bourgeois Exceptionnel Superieur in 1932 and Cru Bourgeois Exceptionnel in 2020.

The vineyard

Chateau Le Crock overlooks a 32-hectare vineyard, spread over three different regions. This estate’s terrior is made up of gravel, surface-level sand and clay subsoil and is located close to the Gironde. It is unique in its ability to retain heat, drain soils and establish a natural water reserve. The vines are 41 years old on average.

Winemaking and aging

Harvested manually in crates, the bunches are rigorously sorted at the vine then in the cellar, keeping only the berries of the best quality. Plot-based vinification is carried out in thermoregulated, truncated stainless steel vats. Alcoholic fermentation is carried out using selected yeasts. Malolactic fermentation is undertaken in new barrels. Aging lasts for 18 months in French oak barrels (30% new, 70% of one previous wine).

Blend

Chateau Le Crock 2020 is made from a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (46%), Merlot (40%), Cabernet Franc (8%), Petit Verdot (6%).
