(95-96) A fantastic 2017 from Margaux with a deep and ripe core of fruit in the center palate. Silky and juicy tannins. Full body, plenty of fruit and a long, flavorful finish.

(93-95) Deep and rich in color, this wine quickly evokes dark fruits, tobacco leaf, espresso, smoke and earthy nuances. On the palate, you’ll find a sweet, soft, fruity, full-bodied wine that expands in your mouth and delivers freshness and verve. Created from a blend of 58% Cabernet Sauvignon and 42% Merlot, this reached13% alcohol with a pH of 3.75. The harvest took place September 19 to October 7. The estate lost close to 20% of their harvest to the frost.

(VN 91-93 points) The 2017 Malescot St. Exupéry has a simpler bouquet than recent vintages with high-toned red cherry and raspberry fruit, quite “warm” compared to its peers and it would benefit from a little more delineation. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin. It is not a complex Malescot St. Exupéry but I admire the balance and focus. There is plenty of tightly wound red berry fruit laced with cedar and smoke, quite finessed towards the finish with a long spicy aftertaste. I would just like the aromatics to step up to the grade of the palate, so let’s see how this shows once in bottle. -- Neal Martin

(91-93) Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2017 Malescot St. Exupery is scented of crushed red and black cherries, warm plums and mulberries with touches of roses and wood smoke. The palate is medium-bodied with plenty of vibrant red and black fruits and soft, plush tannins, with a long, perfumed finish. -Lisa Perrotti-Brown

Wine Spectator, April 2018
(90-93) A breezy and fresh style, with pretty damson plum and cherry fruit lined with high-pitched floral and savory notes. Elegant mineral details run through the silky finish. Pure and graceful, showing sneaky length. -JM

The tannins are light, though they lend ample structure for medium-term aging. It is more about freshness and attractive fruit. Drink from 2023.

They have done a good job here, producing an enjoyable wine. There is evidence of winemaking on show which is skilfully carried out, but it just finishes a little short. Enjoyable medium term drinking from owner Jean-Luc Zuger. Drinking Window 2025 - 2038.
