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.||As I reported from barrel, this is the best Le Crock ever made. It’s about time, since the family that has makes such compelling wines at Leoville-Poyferre, the Cuveliers, also own this little fantasy chateau with its beautifully landscaped grounds, sandwiched between Chateau Montrose and Cos d’Estournel.

Tasted at Château Léoville Poyferré. A blend of 58% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Franc and 6% Petit Verdot, this has a candied, almost sorbet like nose with small black cherries, creme de cassis and a touch of kirsch. Good definition. The palate is medium-bodied, slightly grainy on the entry but good weight, a little more muscular for Le Crock with a saline touch towards the spicy finish. A broad-shouldered Saint Julien that should age well. Tasted March 2010.

Rich and juicy red, with tobacco, coffee and ripe fruit. Full and juicy. From the producers of Leoville Poyferre. Best after 2017. James Suckling, jamessuckling.com

Blueberry and licorice aromas follow through to a full body, with a dense and powerful palate and a long, flavorful, velvet-textured finish. Very well done for this estate. From the owner of Léoville-Poyferré

J58% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Franc, 6% Petit Verdot. Dark purple. Very little on the nose for the moment. Then beautifully ripe and complex on the palate with very marked St-Estèphe tannins on the finish. A long-distance runner. ancis Robinson, jancisrobinson.com
