K&L Notes

94 points 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)

    Here they lost 10% due to frost and 20% more with tropical rains and rot. 52%CS and 48%M. Deep blackish color. Great aromatics of red rose and cassis. Very sweet entry on the palate-lots of red fruited flavors. Lush and seamless-three in a row here for top quality. Almost $30 less than the 2015.
    Drink from 2021 to 2040

    Malescot Saint Exupery- I am 100% agreement with K&L Vice President Trey Beffa when he says that Malescot is a candidate for Wine of the Vintage! 70% CS Tasted twice and outstanding both times, at the Chateaux… Deep, silky and sexy! Loaded with fruit… Cherries-Kirsch and Cassis! More accessible than Palmer, sweeter, rounder fruit than Ch. Margaux, just outstanding! 3 Stars! At the Joanne tasting of 170 wines…sweet, round and lovely! 3 Stars again. Bravo to my golf partner and owner Jean Luc Zuger who gets 3 Stars for making a great wine and for having the sense to price the wine where wine lovers can afford to drink it!

    This is an absolutely beautiful wine with a nose of chocolate and cherries, followed by a lush fruit on the palate and a graceful run to the finish. There are plenty of firm tannins on the back end, meaning the wine should have great potential for the cellar, but it tastes so darn good right now I think most people would have a tough time keeping their hands off of it. The Malescot sums up the 2015 Margaux vintage perfectly: it's a wine of beauty, finesse, and elegance. For the price, it may be the best value we see from the appellation. I'm expecting this and Issan to be the vintage's top bargains for those who (like me) cannot afford to buy wines like Chateau Margaux proper.

    Malescot St. Exupery is a top five producer in Margaux on an annual basis and the 2015 Malescot St. Exupery is no exception. At $49.99 this is the best value of the 2015 Bordeaux vintage in my opinion. To get a wine of this quality for under $50 is the exact reason to buy Bordeaux En Primeur. A beautiful wine packed with ripe red fruits, hints of chocolate and mint this is a silky smooth wine that is irresistible. Always a favorite they have once again knocked it out of the park!
    Top Value! Drink from 2018 to 2048

    One of my possible candidates for wine of the vintage! Very dark color, lovely spicy nose, hints of bittersweet chocolate, polished juicy texture with a hint of mint and savory herbs. Tannins are ripe and integrated. Very fresh and balanced with a long lingering finish- a wine to buy for the cellar!
