This small estate (only 130,000 bottles were produced in 2011) has been on a qualitative tear for a number of years. A fragrant perfume of spring flowers, black raspberries, blueberries and cassis is followed by a wine with medium-bodied, juicy flavors, sweet tannin and a broad, generous mouthfeel. A terrific 2011, it should be at its peak in 2-4 years, and last for 15 or more. Bravo! Wine Advocate.April, 2014

A blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc, the Malescot has a perfumed bouquet with dark plum, raspberry and wild strawberry fruit. It has very fine lift for the vintage. The palate has good weight on the entry with plump mulberry fruit laced with spice. It is a little chunky compared to the 2010 but it makes a good effort in a difficult vintage, plus the oak is well integrated towards the finish. This may warrant a higher score after bottling.

Black licorice and blueberries on the nose and palate. Medium to full body, with fine tannins and a juicy finish. Delicate and caressing. jamessuckling.com

This is very solid, with a delicious beam of dark currant and plum fruit framed nicely with graphite and espresso notes. Shows depth and length, with well-embedded acidity. James Molesworth, WineSpectator.com

Elderberry juice, black core. Sweet damson fruit. Gently inviting though there's no sense of excitement. A bit lean on the palate, fresh enough but the structure overpowers the fruit so the tannins finish dry – though maybe it will gain flesh? Score assumes so. Julia Harding MW, jancisrobinson.com

Strikingly aromatic blackcurrant fruit, very good natural richness of flavour, a slight greenness that will blend out, good potential and good length. Drink 2015-2025. Decanter.com

Full bodied and generous, this wine year after year consistently produces high quality wine in the past decade. Excellent balance, ripe tannins and good depth ending with a fairly long finish. Well made wine with plums and layers of blackberry fruit and cedar. The flavours are restrained by an enormous amount of tannins, but given the depth of the fruit, there is promise that this wine will show its best with at least five years of bottle age.

A fine, rich modern style of Margaux with good dark fruit and good length. Finishing just a touch dry at the moment but made with real ambition.
