    If you have been buying Jean Luc Zugar's Ch Malescot in the last 10 years you are very smart. He continues to make outstanding wine that rival's the best wines in Margaux at nowhere near the price. The 2017 has a lovely nose of fresh grapes, on the palate it is sweet and supple, with a little grip on the finish and great tasting. Ralph Sands

    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 2031

    Malescot is great again in 2017 - one of the true gems in Margaux and spectacular in a vintage where their neighbors struggled. Production is down a third from the previous vintage. Warm, inciting aromatics of licorice and dark red/black fruit lead a palate that is full of blackberry, vanilla, and cassis. Terrific concentration, plenty of new oak, bright acidity, and structure to tie it all together. The soft-spoken Jean Luc Zuger knew he had a winner here and the wine spoke for itself. Well done. Drink 2023 to 2038.
