Cháteau Le Crock

Cháteau Le Crock, Saint Estèphe, 2009

Cháteau Le Crock, Saint Estèphe, 2009, Grand Vin Bordeaux, Red-wine from France

This vintage is two years older than the same wine of 2011 I tried recently. I like to risk writing that I would prefer the younger one. To avoid any misunderstanding (!), the 2011 is perhaps less drinkable yet but 2009 is.

Opened by accident and not knowing the wine beforehand, late last summer I had a great experience drinking this Bordeaux. Not knowing too much about wine from Bordeaux, I later understood that this is something very nice. It is a rich red, very nice and balanced, as this richness isn’t heavy. Somehow a bit herbal and of course you can smell all kind of red and dark fruits. This wine is straightforward – in German: geradeaus – without any misleading or distracting extras.
