Decanter: Lots of natural concentration and real elegance – the high percentage of Cabernet shows well with both grip and charm. Very good in Malescot’s individual style. 93 Points

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
James Suckling - "The beauty in the fruit here is so impressive. Full body, super fine tannins. It’s very racy and incredibly long. Sexy and rich finish. Better than the legendary 2009? A blend of 70% cabernet savignon, 30% merlot. Barrel Sample: 97-98 Points"
Ratings
Wine Spectator - "Very lush and warm, with delicious plum and boysenberry fruit flowing easily over the well-integrated structure. Generous in feel, offering a lingering black tea note. Very suave. Barrel Sample: 93-96 Points"
Awards
The Wine Advocate - "The 2015 Malescot-St-Exupery has an intriguing and complex bouquet with oyster shells and seaweed infusing the intense black fruit. It is certainly well defined with nicely integrated new oak. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp tannin, a keen thread of acidity, very pure and smooth in texture, gently unfolding towards the lightly spiced finish that lingers long in the mouth. This is a superb Margaux, surfeit with breeding and sophistication, though it will need 10-15 years in bottle. Barrel Sample: 92-95 Points"
Winemaker Notes
The Chateau Malescot St. Exupery is a dark color with a fine crimson tint. The wine offers notes of ripe fruit, mocha and vanilla along with powerful yet harmonious and smooth tannins.
Other Notes
Chateau Malescot St. Exupery owest its name to two former owners: Simon Malescot, a royal councillor to the Bordeaux parliment, who acquired the estate in 1697, and Count Jean-Baptiste de Saint-Exupery, who owned it from 1827 to 1853. Paul Zuger and his son, Rojer, purchased the chateau, located in the middle of the town of Margaux, in June 1955. After more than thirty years of unstinting efforts, Malescot St. Exupery's coat of arms has never been truer: Semper Ad Altum ("Ever Higher").
