Château Le Rey – Les Rocheuses 2018 – Castillon Côtes-de-Bordeaux

The nose is mineral, racy and offers power/intensity. It reveals notes of fresh blackberry and fresh/crunchy red fruits associated ith touches of racy minerality, flowers (iris, violet) as well as fine hint of liquorice and an imperceptible hint of chocolate (in the background). The palate is fruity, juicy, well-balanced, beautifully racy, precise, straight and offers a beautiful definition, an acidulous/juicy frame, a racy minerality, a good freshness as well as tension. On the palate this wine expresses notes of juicy/acidulous blackberry, juicy/acidulous raspberry and small notes of juicy/acidulous cassis associated with a touch of juicy/acidulous strawberry, flowers as well as very discreet hints of liquorice stick. A gourmand wine, on the fruit and well-built.
