The 2010 Le Crock has a good Bordelais nose dominated by the blackberry scent of Cabernet Sauvignon (over 50% of the blend).

I tried this along with a Rothchild Haute Medoc and it truly was better than anticipated. It is full bodies with a carefully scented nose. The bouquet was great in the sense. It is a Bordeaux with all of its trappings, not overly oaky, but not too light. I highly recommend trying this. Read More
