Gorgeous, flowery, classic Margaux once again, the 2010 Malescot St.-Exupery continues to show virtually no toasty oak, given the impeccable balance and full-bodied, full-throttle style it possesses. Black raspberries, creme de cassis and spring floral notes intermixed with forest floor and a hint of charcoal are followed by an opulent, sexy, full-bodied wine whose tannins have become much sweeter, while the wine is less restrained yet still exuberant and impressive. This is a phenomenal example once again for this estate, harmonious in every sense of style, extraordinarily long, rich and ageworthy. Three to four years of bottle age will do wonders to make it more accessible, but this wine is set for 25-30 years of longevity. Wine Advocate.February, 2013

The Malescot Saint-Exupery has a very well defined nose, very precise with good mineralité. Blackberry, cedar, graphite and limestone, great focus and aromatic “bravura”. The palate has a ripe, fleshy entry, quite noticeable new oak but there is sufficient fruit to support it. Seamless texture with dark cherries, blackcurrant, a touch of graphite and cedar towards the finish that is more “classic” in style than the entry. This has great potential and could turn out to be better than the 2009. Tasted April 2011. Neal Martin erobertparker.com

This is a 2005 Malescot in the making. And that was stunning. I love the blueberries, chocolate and nuts on the nose and palate. The finish lasts for minutes with so much . Goes on and on. I want to drink this! Wow. James Suckling, jamessuckling.com

Fresh and lively, with lots of prominent but silky tannins carrying the mouthwatering plum, red currant and black cherry fruit. Rock-solid, with great buried acidity and a long, vivid finish. —J.M. James Molesworth, winespectator.com

Sweet and creamy. Then a bit too sweet. A bit forced and very painful acidity on the finish. Bit of a caricature. Aggressively astringent finish. Jancis Robinson, jancisrobinson.com

Striking fragrance of cassis-Cabernet fruit with a hint of greenness that adds lift, very good extraction and florality beginning to emerge, will show fascinating complexity over time. Drink 2018-30. (17.5 points) Steven Spurrier, decanter.com

Malescot St. Exupery Blending 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot with the remainder evenly split between Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, this Margaux wine reached 14% alcohol. This is not a taste by the numbers wine. There is no sensation of heat in this beauty. Aromas of tobacco, cigar ash, stone, blackberry and floral scents pop from the glass with little effort. Mouth coating layers of concentrated, dense, ripe, sweet dark berries, powerful tannins and freshness. Rich, thick and flavorful, with a boatload of tannin, this Bordeaux wine will require over a decade of time in the cellar. Pairing high quality, style and price, this merits serious attention. 95-97 Pts Jeff Leve winecellarinsider.com

The deep ruby purple 2010 Malescot St-Exupery adds aromas of violets, plums, blackberries and spices, echoed on the palate with excellent persistence. This is a wonderful full-bodied Margaux with generous flavours and great depth and intensity. Jeannie Cho Lee MW asianpalate.com

Lovely nose, pure, soapy and floral. A big mouthful but it has real elegance and freshness. Top class here this year.
