The wine is concentrated, fat and intense. But it is also balanced, fresh, long, silky and complex. This is a stunner.

Some very rich and ripe red and dark berries here make for an impressive, engaging nose that has charming violet undertones. The palate is velvety and supple, while super smooth tannins deliver a long and plush, plum-soaked finish. Great wine and already drinking well. Try from 2023.

Lovely steeped plum, fig and blackberry fruit is melded thoroughly with notes of alder, lilac and warm tar, giving this both treble and bass, while velvety tannins carry the finish with ease. Offers a long sanguine detail... Lovely steeped plum, fig and blackberry fruit is melded thoroughly with notes of alder, lilac and warm tar, giving this both treble and bass, while velvety tannins carry the finish with ease. Offers a long sanguine detail through the finish. Best from 2022 through 2040. – JM

Medium to full-bodied with ripe, grainy tannins and plenty of expressive fruit, it finishes long and pure. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown

The 2015 Malescot St. Exupery, which showed so impressively in barrel, has developed a gorgeous bouquet with sea spray-infused black fruit, well defined with hints of shucked oyster shell. The palate is fresh on the entry with a fine line of acidity, a Margaux that is tensile from start to finish without compromising fruit concentration. There is a lot of personality in this Malescot, real terroir expression on the finish and it has a very promising future.

(WE91-93 points) This is a lightweight wine that's fresh and fruity, with an attractive suggestion of tannic structure and ample acidity. The wine will develop quickly.

The 2015 Malescot St. Exupery has a ripe, perfumed bouquet of ample red fruit laced with allspice, cedar and warm gravel.

The 2015 Malescot St. Exupery has a ripe, perfumed bouquet of ample red fruit laced with allspice, cedar and warm gravel. The medium-bodied palate displays slightly chewy tannin and feels quite primal, requiring more bottle age to knit together. There is density and even brawn here, but counterbalancing grace and elegance are needed to complete the package. I suspect this will show much better in four or five years, hence the plus sign next to my score. Tasted blind at the Southwold 2015 Bordeaux tasting. -- Neal Martin

Relatively open on the nose even at this early stage, with lashings of freshly crushed black fruits. On the palate, the dominant flavours are cinnamon and freshly puréed raspberry and blackberry. It's not hugely intense... Relatively open on the nose even at this early stage, with lashings of freshly crushed black fruits. On the palate, the dominant flavours are cinnamon and freshly puréed raspberry and blackberry. It's not hugely intense, and should be for medium term drinking.

17/20 Particularly glowing crimson. Light nose with some wildness about it. A hint of something animal! Distinctive wine that is a bit more daring than the average Margaux. Not the most tannic but very nicely balanced.
