K&L Notes

94 points Neal Martin's Wine Journal: "The Château Malescot St. Exupery 2005 has a deep garnet colour. The nose is quite austere at first and then once it gets to know you, it flourishes with brambly black fruit, wild strawberry, cedar and graphite - like many, almost Pauillac-like in style. The palate is medium-bodied with dense ripe tannin. There is enormous weight and presence here, layers of powerful spicy red fruit, a very fine line of acidity and a killer line of graphite on the finish. (02/2015)

    One of the great wines of the vintage. Very deep and concentrated. A little clove and cinnamon on the nose and on the palate. Very mouth-coating. An older school wine with great balance. Broad, fantastic wine. Will last a long time. Fabulous buy. **1/2

    Barrel tasting the 2005 vintage in Bordeaux two years ago, this was an absolute standout in an ocean of outstanding wines. Re-tasting it the other day confirmed that it has explosive aromas of crushed flowers, blackberry fruit, mocha and violets. The body is thick and powerful, yet elegant, with deep, ripe, dark fruit, tobacco and powerful yet very ripe tannin. Truly an aristocratic wine.
