Tasting Notes

Deep ruby in colour with sweet, caramelised red fruits on the nose. The palate is glossy and ripe, with star anise and cinnamon layered by morello cherry and baked plums. Modern and opulent in style but not over extracted, this silky and fleshy wine will offer hedonistic pleasure from a fairly early stage.

Score: 16.5Farr Vintners, Farr Tasting, May 2020

The 2019 Malescot St. Exupéry is richer and more flamboyant on the nose compared to its Margaux peers with ravishing red berry fruit, vanilla, iodine and touches of cassis, becoming increasingly floral with aeration. The palate has a cashmere texture on the entry matched by well judged acidity. Wonderful cohesion here, harmonious and focused with veins of black pepper and allspice towards the finish that feels reassuringly long. Deee-licious! 2024 - 2060

Score: 95/97Neal Martin, vinous.com, June 2020

The 2019 Malescot St. Exupéry is a striking wine that is sure to find many admirers. Gravel, smoke, licorice, pencil shavings and crushed rocks meld into a core of dark, inky plum and berry fruit. The interplay of earthy and savory notes with rich, dense fruit here is utterly captivating. Even in this warm, obviously opulent vintage, Malescot remains one of the most distinctive wines in Margaux, and in Bordeaux more broadly. I loved it.

Score: 94/96Antonio Galloni, vinous.com, June 2020

This is enjoyable and has been well handled, offering blackberry fruit with a brambled hedgerow edge that suggests both plenty of juice and also a slightly rustic edge to the tannins. It gives the wine an unfussy quality that emphasises the floral aromatics. Drinking Window 2025 - 2040
