STORY BEHIND THIS WINE
Chateau Malescot St. Exupery is a superb 3rd Classé growth from the exhalted Margaux appellation. Widely considered to be amongst the top performing estates in the last 20 odd years, this chateau is located in the small, village of Margaux, just a stone’s throw from Chateau Rauzan Segla. Portions of the vineyard abut the vines of Chateau Margaux. The 2018 is one for laying down for 10 years , or more. The rewards for such endeavour and patience are incalulable.
14-16 Months New Oak
Black core with narrow rim. Pretty oaky on the nose but a hint of something prettily floral underneath. The oak is covering the fruit at the moment but there’s flesh at the core, and the tannins are just slightly hard on the finish. The juicy fruit in the middle gives it a chance for the future.
