One of the ‘top’ wine from Margaux, Château Malescot Saint Exupéry is offered and comes highly recommended@ £504.00 IB per case or £252.00 IB per case of six...
Suckling believes its on-par with Château Margaux itself (same score)...
This is a superb wine. I didn’t think it could be better than the 2015 but indeed it is. Full, layered and sexy. It goes on for minutes with dense fruit, yet it’s also vivid and showcases sublime tannins and acidity balance. Great finish.
The 2016 Malescot-St-Exupéry has an opulent, lavish and pure bouquet with billowing black cherry and blueberry fruit, a touch of mint and graphite emerging with time. I love the delineation to this Margaux. The palate is very well balanced, sensual and voluptuous in style, but that does not detract from the fine structure here and the precision towards the finish. Everything seems to be in its right place here; it is one of the best Malescot-St-Exupéry that I have tasted and it is wonderful.
