    (Château Le Crock (St Estèphe)) A very different quality of fruit here compared to the 2008 just tasted. This is much more convincing, showing dark and spicy fruit, with hints of roasted almonds, perhaps an oak-derived aroma. The palate is soft, supple at first, although there are some firm and grippy tannins beneath. It doesn't have the midpalate substance I expected from all that spicy fruit on the nose. There is a gentle weight to it, underpinned by broad and ripe tannins, firm and giving substance, not over-done at least. Good acids. Plenty of substance and grip here but it all feels a touch muted.
