This is distinctive, with a roasted alder streak running through an enticing core of crushed plum, blackberry and black currant confiture flavors. Long and velvety on the finish, with bay, tobacco and black tea accents checking in. This is suave, with fruit and terroir in spades, particularly for the vintage. Best from 2017 through 2025. — J.M.

Beautiful aromas and flavors of cassis, ripe black cherries and raspberries. Some earth, too. This is a full-bodied red with silky tannins and a long, fruity finish. Juicy. Better in 2018.

Another great wine in this vintage, the 2012 Malescot offers up tremendous level of black fruits, charcoal and intense, a medium to full-bodied mouthfeel, sensational purity, low acidity and ripe tannins. It is full-bodied, stunning, multidimensional, and a compelling example of this vintage. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2030+. - Robert M. Parker, Jr.

The 2012 Malescot is really coming into form, revealing a plethora of complex aromas - plums, black cherry, anise, cola, fresh lavender and sage underscored by a meaty, earthy element – that are perfectly integrated and show the wine’s sheer class. The palate delivers the goods that the nose promises with a serious, dense core of fruit that is balanced out by a lovely spine of acid, suave tannins and the trademark elegance that we all crave from Margaux. The lengthy finish harmoniously brings together the palate, nose and structure in a wonderful way that only the best chateaux can achieve. This is already a pleasure to drink now but is just on verge of gaining some tertiary complexity. Give this another year or two in the cellar and enjoy over the next decade plus.
