The 2022 Château Le Crock is absolutely brilliant and shows how strong the vintage is in the northern part of the Médoc. Pure black and blue fruits, graphite, lead pencil, and fresh earth all define the aromatics, and it's full-bodied, with a juicy spine of acidity and a great finish. The 2022 is based on 44% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot, 11% Cabernet Franc, and the rest Petit Verdot, with the harvest dates spanning the 12th to the 26th of September and tiny yields of 20.7 hectoliters per hectare. The élevage will span 14-18 months in just 30% new French oak. For the number geeks out there, the alcohol hit 14.7% with a pH of 3.84 and an IPT of 94 - Jeb Dunnuck

Very pretty blackberry and blackcurrant aromas and flavors. Medium body with creamy, round and juicy tannins. Will age. - James Suckling

The 2022 Le Crock matures in 30% new oak including 500-liter vessels and amphorae. This is welldefined and focused on the nose. Understated at first, opening with blackberry, briar and pencil shavings aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy black fruit, black pepper and graphite, taut and linear toward its almost Pauillac-like, certainly tannic finish. Excellent stuff from the l'équipe Poyferré. - Neal Martin, Vinous Media

Plump fruits, this has violet edging to the inky colour, and is intense, with a tannic density that is higher than usual, and layers of cassis and chocolate block through the palate. intense and concentrated, perhaps less immediately enticing than the 2019 and 2020 vintages at Le Crock, but with clear ageing potential. Serious, structured, good appellation signature. Harvest September 12 to 26 September, 21hl/h yield. - Jane Anson, Inside Bordeaux

Milk chocolate, cola, violets and ripe cherries on the nose, smells quite opulent. Juicy and so succulent, a real burst of energy and freshness but with supple and filling tannins giving joy and structure. Tannins are massy, filling and on the present side right now, but the acidity gives lift and movement to the concentrated blackcurrant and herbal raspberry fruit with lashings of liquorice, toast, cinnamon, vanilla and clove. A lovely, very drinkable and accessible wine with clear power and succulence, body and length. Gorgeous mineral tang too, feels well constructed with lots of detail and precision. 3.84pH. 3.84g/L total acidity. 94IPT. Harvest 12-26 September. - Georgina Hindle, Decanter

The 2022 Le Crock reveals bright aromas of cherry, plum, cassis, blueberry and pencil shavings. Medium to full-bodied, concentrated and vibrant but youthfully firm, it's a blend of 47% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot, 7% Cabernet Franc and 6% Petit Verdot. This is a strong performance from the owners of Léoville-Poyferré, now accompanied for this estate by consulting enologist Antoine Médeville. - Yohan Castaing, Wine Advocate
