Have had the 2001 and 2002 kosher editions. They were very nice, if not overly complex bordeaux. Also, remarkably similar to each other. Some tannin grip with red/black fruits. Not quite an elite wine, in my opinion, but could score it around an 89.

Menachem, Hi....

Following is my tasting note for the wine in question.

Best
Rogov

Chateau Le Crock, St-Estephe, 2003 (Kosher Edition): Dark garnet with purple and orange reflections, full-bodied with still gripping tannins needing time to settle in. On the nose and palate blackberry, currant and black cherry fruits, those on a background of Oriental spices and olives. On the finish hints of licorice and citrus peel. Best 2009-2012. Score 89.

Menachem, Hi.....

Indeed there is a regular (i.e. non-kosher) version of the Chateau Le Crock which as a possible point of interest is owned by the same family that has Chateaux Leoville Poyferre and Camensac. The family also produces Chateau Moulin RIche and Pavillon des Connetables (respectively the second and third wines of Leoville Poyferre). For ease in comparison, the tasting notes for the 2003 kosher and non-kosher edition follow.

Chateau Le Crock, St.-Estephe, 2003: Dark garnet in color, full-bodied, with firm tannins and generous spices from the oak in which it aged. On the nose and palate wild berry, black cherry and blackcurrants on a mineral-rich background. Showing fine balance and structure and a long finish. Best 2010-2018. Score 90. (Re-tasted 16 Jan 2007)
