This is a 2005 Malescot in the making. And that was stunning. I love the blueberries chocolate and nuts on the nose and palate. The finish lasts for minutes with so much . Goes on and on. I want to drink this! Wow.

This is not a taste by the numbers wine. There is no sensation of heat in this beauty. Aromas of tobacco cigar ash stone blackberry and floral scents pop from the glass with little effort. Mouth coating layers of concentrated dense ripe sweet dark berries powerful tannins and freshness. Rich thick and flavorful with a boatload of tannin this Bordeaux wine will require over a decade of time in the cellar. Pairing high quality style and price this merits serious attention.

A gorgeous fragrance of spring flowers cedarwood black and red currants and hints of spice box and subtle oak is followed by a generously endowed full-bodied opulent wine with layers of concentration a restrained yet exuberant personality superb fruit purity and a long finish. There is plenty of tannin no doubt elevated alcohol and wonderful freshness as well as delicacy. This beauty should drink well for 25 or more years.

Fresh and lively with lots of prominent but silky tannins carrying the mouthwatering plum red currant and black cherry fruit. Rock-solid with great buried acidity and a long vivid finish. -J.M.

The Malescot Saint-Exupery has a very well defined nose very precise with good mineralité. Blackberry cedar graphite and limestone great focus and aromatic "bravura". The palate has a ripe fleshy entry quite noticeable... The Malescot Saint-Exupery has a very well defined nose very precise with good mineralité. Blackberry cedar graphite and limestone great focus and aromatic "bravura". The palate has a ripe fleshy entry quite noticeable new oak but there is sufficient fruit to support it. Seamless texture with dark cherries blackcurrant a touch of graphite and cedar towards the finish that is more "classic" in style than the entry. This has great potential and could turn out to be better than the 2009.

Aged in 100% new oak for approximately 14 months. Intense aromas of incense coffee mocha and ripe blackberry rise from the glass. The wine is elegant and medium-bodied and I love the texture and precise concentration. A fair amount of tannins but well balanced this offers serious persistence all the way to the long fresh finish. Try between 2015 and 2025.
