The 2019 Malescot-St-Exupery is a Bordeaux Blend from the renowned Margaux region in France. With an elegant red color that glistens in the glass, this wine captivates from the moment it is poured.

On the nose, sweet currant and berry aromas mingle with hints of blackcurrants, black cherries, and delicate floral notes. It is a bouquet that exudes sophistication and complexity, inviting you to discover its layers of scent.

As you take your first sip, you are greeted by a full-bodied wine that is both powerful and refined. The beautifully polished tannins create a velvety texture that lingers on the palate for minutes, leaving a lasting impression. This wine is tight and focused, showcasing its potential for aging. It is recommended to wait at least six or seven years before opening a bottle, allowing it to fully develop and reveal its true character.

The Malescot-St-Exupery 2019 displays a remarkable freshness that is both vibrant and appealing. Bramble fruit and hedgerow flavors dominate the palate, with juicy blueberries and a touch of freshly crushed mint leaves. The interplay between herbal and fruit aspects adds complexity and depth to the wine, while gentle tannins provide structure and support. Although the tannins are abundant, it is advisable to exercise patience and give this wine a few more years of bottle aging before indulging in its mint-tinged fruit flavors.

Renowned wine critics have praised this wine for its excellence. James Suckling awarded it an impressive score of 96 points, describing it as layered and tightly focused, with a need for further aging. Vinous also awarded it 96 points, noting its well-defined bouquet and sappy black fruit flavors. Other esteemed critics, such as Decanter and Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, awarded it scores of 94 points, highlighting its succulent acids, fleshy core of fruit, and muscular structure.

In conclusion, the 2019 Malescot-St-Exupery is a serious Margaux wine that demands attention. It is a wine of exceptional quality, deserving of time in the cellar to reach its full potential. With its refined elegance, polished tannins, and vibrant fruit flavors, this wine is a true testament to the artistry of Bordeaux winemaking.
