Château Le Crock is one of the finest Cru Bourgeois properties in St. Estèphe, and has been owned by the Cuvelier family since 1903. They also own Léoville Poyferré, as well as a successful négociant business. Le Crock is located south of the village of St. Estèphe, with its vineyards being adjacent to those of Montrose and Cos d`Estournel.
Le Crock has 33 hectares planted with Cabernet Sauvignon (60%), Merlot (25%), Cabernet Franc (10%) and Petit Verdot (5%).
Le Crock's grapes are hand-harvested and are vinified traditionally - the wine is then aged in small oak barrels (33% new) for 18 months. It is bottled unfiltered. Le Crock now property produces textbook St. Estèphes that are deeply coloured and concentrated and full-bodied on the palate. Since 1995, Michel Rolland has been a consultant and the wine has been better balanced and more harmonious.
