K&L Notes

Château Malescasse is an historic property ideally situated on gravel soils close to the Gironde River just north of Margaux. While it is true that 2007 will never have the power or authority of the finest vintages of the decade, the best wines display a remarkable ripeness and an admirable richness of texture. These are medium to full-bodied reds with soft tannins that will make great near to medium-term drinking. They are priced appropriately and many, like this 2007 Malescasse, offer exceptional value.

    This is a classic K&L find for Bordeaux--an under rated vintage from a larger appellation which is drinking far above its modest price point. If you're looking for a great weeknight claret that is ready to drink now, you should absolutely try the 2007 Malescasse.

    The nose on this is amazing! Roses, black cherry, tobacco and minerals with nice aged savory elements. The fruit is fresh on the palate, with enough acid and restraint to make it the perfect food claret. This is THE deal in sub $20 claret at the moment.

    This wine is a beauty. The garnet color with some lighter tinges tells us this wine is developing nicely, and very much ready to drink. It has an appealing, sweet fruit note on the nose, but is enveloped by even more enticing woodsy, cocoa and violet notes. It has a medium body, with present but caressing tannins. Above all it is a fresh and classic Bordeaux for the table. I don’t usually talk about the prices, as I find it is up to the consumer to decide if it is a good value, but in this case I have to point out that this is a great opportunity to buy, and buy by the case.

    The 2007 is a softer, more forward version of the 2009. There is a lovely floral lift to the nose. Good ripeness was achieved here. There is plenty of bright, sweet black fruit on the palate and surprising weight and richness. Offered at a significant price reduction to the ’09, this is a superb example of an affordable, everyday red.

    I love the nose on this wine – singing with raw, wild honey and dark coffee, but it’s the palate that really shows off the cooler 2007 vintage with dark berry fruit, hints of violet, and a structure that’s more linear than lush. Medium tannins show up at the finish but subtly grip without being overbearing. Château Malescasse is a delicious and surprisingly complex Bordeaux, especially given the stellar price.

    Here is an amazing bargain approaching 10 years of age and priced to buy by the case. This is very expressive with effusive aromas and flavors of raspberry and rhubarb fruit along with cedar chest and cigar box. Bargain hunters need to taste this crisp, fruity and very complex beauty.

    A perfect score for value Bordeaux to enjoy tonight. This overachieving property makes great wines most any year and 2007 is no exception. I love 2007 Bordeaux-much like 1997 with 10 more years of winemaking expertise. This wine has some violets on the nose and palate. Perfumey and toasty aromas lead to the palate. Some licorice too. 53% Cab and 37% Merlot with some PV and Cab Franc thrown in.
    Drink from 2015 to 2020
