Introducing the 2020 Malescot-St-Exupery, a Bordeaux Blend from the esteemed Margaux region in France. This wine exudes elegance and finesse while showcasing the remarkable characteristics of the vintage. With a deep purple-black color that catches the eye, it immediately captivates the senses.

Upon first nosing this wine, one is greeted with an intoxicating bouquet of ripe black and red currants, black cherries, and raspberry leaves. These vibrant fruit aromas are complemented by subtle hints of ground cloves, wafts of lilacs, and a touch of tilled soil. The nose is truly a symphony of scents, enticing the drinker to take the first sip.

On the palate, the 2020 Malescot-St-Exupery delivers a mouth-coating experience that is both rich and balanced. Layers of black and red fruit unfold, enveloping the senses with their luscious flavors. The texture is firm and grainy, adding a delightful complexity to the wine. Well-balanced acidity adds freshness and vibrancy, leading to a lingering finish that is fragrant and earthy.

Renowned wine critic Robert Parker's Wine Advocate has awarded this wine an impressive score of 97 points, praising its showy scents, mouth-coating fruit layers, and well-balanced acidity. Another reputable wine critic, Jeff Leve, echoes these sentiments, describing the wine as plush, dense, and full-bodied, with polished, velvety dark red fruits that soothe the palate.

This wine has incredible aging potential, and it is recommended to cellar it for at least 8 years to allow its flavors to fully develop. As time passes, it will evolve, revealing even more complexity and depth. However, if one cannot resist the temptation, it can be enjoyed now with a few hours of decanting to allow the wine to open up.

The 2020 Malescot-St-Exupery is a true masterpiece from the Margaux region, showcasing the artistry and craftsmanship of its producer. It is a wine that will undoubtedly leave a lasting impression on any wine enthusiast fortunate enough to experience it.
