Description

97  James Suckling
“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.” (2/2018)

95+  Antonio Galloni for Vinous
“One of the highlights of the vintage, the 2015 Malescot Saint Exupéry is superb. Grilled herbs, smoke, black cherry, lavender, menthol and graphite literally explode from this glass. Huge swaths of tannin give the wine its shape and big, ample frame. Iron, smoke, graphite, grilled herbs and licorice punctuate the huge, powerful finish. Readers should be in no rush to open the 2015, as it is likely to require at least a handful of years to become approachable.” (2/2018)

95  Wine Spectator
“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.” (3/2018)

94+  Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
“Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, the 2015 Malescot St. Exupery is scented of chocolate-covered cherries, cassis and red plums with touches of earth and bay leaves. Medium to full-bodied with ripe, grainy tannins and plenty of expressive fruit, it finishes long and pure.” (2/2018) Lisa Perrotti-Brown

94  Neal Martin
“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. Anticipated maturity: 2022 – 2045.” (02/2018)
