Complex aromas of truffle blackberry and flowers follow through to a full body with supersilky tannins and a long polished caressing finish. Superrefined and pretty. Needs plenty of time in the bottle to come around. Best... Complex aromas of truffle blackberry and flowers follow through to a full body with supersilky tannins and a long polished caressing finish. Superrefined and pretty. Needs plenty of time in the bottle to come around. Best after 2015. -JS

Musky aromas of currant graphite tobacco leaf menthol herbs and smoke are sexed up by a captivating candied quality. Densely packed and chewy but suave with good peppery herbal lift to the very ripe dark berry and mineral flavors. Not the ripest vintage ever for this wine but that's not a bad thing as there's real energy to go with the broad texture. 90 points

Tasted at the property as part of a vertical tasting, the 2006 Château Malescot St Exupery is a blend of 57% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot and 4% each of Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc, picked between 25 September and 12 October. It has a detailed, quite mineral-driven bouquet with blood orange scents infusing the red berry fruit, the oak neatly integrated. The palate is well balanced with edgy red berry fruit on the entry, a stoniness underneath, a Margaux of the earth not the air. Correct and linear, with good depth and ample freshness, it actually reminds me of Brane Cantenac in style and the salinity on the finish is just wonderful. Returning after 30 minutes, you notice the acidity coming through more and more, though it is in sync with the fruit. This is a delightful Margaux to enjoy over the next 10-15 years. Tasted March 2016. - Neal Martin

Chalky red cherries and cinnamon are accented by light floral and red raspberry notes with underlying aromas of wet peat. Sweet lush and full on the palate with rich berry fruits up front. Great body through the mid to the back with toasty vanilla and black cherry notes with darker edges of graphite and charcoal.
