Description

2009 is right up there as one of the great Bordeaux vintages in recent years, and some of the Cru Bourgeois estates, such as Chateau le Crock, produced wines that are up there competing with many Cru Classé estates in terms of quality. Highly praised by critics this wine will drink well for another 6-8 years 

"A blend of 57% Cabernet Sauvignon, 31% Merlot, 7% petit Verdot and 5% Cabernet Franc, the wine tips the scales at 14+% alcohol. Dense ruby/purple, with notes of blueberry pie interwoven with charcoal, licorice, some chalky crushed rocks and a distinctive floral note, the wine is succulent, unctuously textured, and fleshy, with low acidity and layers of fruit. A sensational effort from this cru bourgeois, it should drink well for 15-20 more years." 90pts Robert Parkers Wine Advocate
