Cuvelier Crock St-Estephe 2018


Jane Anson MW writes of Crock’s “great quality, rich in black fruits and soft tannins, with the same brush of glamour that you find at Leoville-Poyferré.” We were quite taken with the 2018 vintage of this wine – the abundant fruit is beautifully supported by the tannin, and joined by delicate floral and mineral notes. Though it’s not subtle, it’s bold, inky, juicy, and just delicious.

We weren’t alone in our assessment. Vinous’s Antonio Galloni gave it 92 points, finding “plenty of personality” and calling it “an especially rich, potent edition” of the wine. This has enough stuffing to age a while, but it’s simply delicious today. Serve with a stew.
