Chateau Malescot St Exupery 2019  - First Bottle


95-97 Vinous -
The 2019 Malescot Saint Exupery 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 reasurringly long. Deee-licious!
96 Falstaff -
Dark ruby garnet, violet reflections, subtle edge lightening. With hints of nougat and ripe plums underlaid ripe dark berry fruit, delicate of candied oranges, inviting bouquet. Juicy, complex, elegant, ripe sweet cherries, silky tannins, finesse-rich acid arc, mineral and long adherent, very seductive style, with great future potential.
96 James Suckling -
Sweet currant and berry aromas with hints of blackcurrants, black cherries and flowers. It’s full-bodied and layered with beautifully polished tannins that last for minutes. Tight and very focused. This needs at least six or seven years to open. Try after 2027.
94 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate -
The 2019 Malescot St. Exupery is generous and expressive, bursting with aromas of cassis, cherries and blackberries mingled with hints of loamy soil, dark chocolate and espresso roast. Full-bodied, broad and muscular, its fleshy core of fruit is framed by succulent acids and ripe, powdery tannins that assert themselves on the finish. This will reward a bit of bottle age with flamboyant drinking.
92 Wine Spectator -
Shows steeped plum and cherry fruit flavors that are married to a melted licorice note, with a spine of singed balsam wood through the finish. Offers nice length and harnesses the heat of the vintage well. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2034.

About the Producer

Chateau Malescot owes its name to two of its owners: Simon Malescot and Count Jean-Baptiste Saint-Exupery. Count Jean-Baptiste updated the chateau enough for the chateau to be ranked a third growth in 1855 Bordeaux classification. However, was so extravagant that they had to sell the chateau. When the Zuger family purchased they estate they had to upgrade, modernize and expand the winery and vineyards. This required a lot of work and a long renovation to bring the Chateau up to its current state. These wines are known for their aromatics and silky texture, especially after some age.
