Château Le Rey is without doubt our bargain find of this vintage. A delight to taste, even the barrel sample was drinking well already! Le Rey sits atop Sainte-Colombe, a little hamlet east of Saint-Emilion with the same mix of clay atop limestone that gives rise to some of Saint-Emilion’s best 1er Grand Cru Classé vineyards like Canon. ‘Les Argileuses’ is crafted in a Burgundian manner, expressing the essence of its individual terroir plots. 80% merlot & 20% cabernet franc are fermented in clay amphora delivering mineral freshness, red berry fruit and soft tannins. A total steal & must buy at £8 a bottle!
