Decanter, November 2020
A hugely enjoyable wine. Rich, round and balanced with a lovely saline twist on the finish. A really great choice if looking for impactful but sappy early drinking. Drinking Window 2022 - 2024

Really fresh and tangy with beautiful crushed-berry and spice character and just a hint of stone. Fresh and beautiful. No wood. Some amphora. A blend of 85% merlot and 15% cabernet franc. Drink now.

Full, concentrated and packed with savory layers, it has a soft texture and a nice long finish.

Bottled unusually in a Burgundy-shaped bottle (and a heavy one at that), this wine comes from the portion of the estate that is on clay soil. That gives the wine weight to add to its rich fruit. Wood aging contributes...   Bottled unusually in a Burgundy-shaped bottle (and a heavy one at that), this wine comes from the portion of the estate that is on clay soil. That gives the wine weight to add to its rich fruit. Wood aging contributes spice and polish to the wine. Drink from 2022. ROGER VOSS

Looking first at the 2018 Château Le Rey Les Argileuses, it reveals a dense purple hue as well as a complex bouquet of blackberries, peppery herbs, cedar pencil, and truffle. It's nicely textured, medium-bodied, and well-balanced, with light, elegant tannins and a great finish. It's already a joy to drink but should keep nicely for a decade.
