2015 Malescot St Exupery



From one of the best-performing appellations of the 2015 Bordeaux campaign and described as “a superb Margaux” by Neal Martin and perhaps “better than the legendary 2009?” by James Suckling, the Malescot St Exupery 2015 is a tremendously exciting wine.

 

With scores of 93-95 from Martin alongside a massive 97-98 points from Suckling, it looks a very strong buy. Malescot St Exupery comes from the heart of Margaux, an appellation where some superb wines were made in 2015.

 

Even in this context the Malescot stands out, with Suckling considering it to be so good that it may turn out to be even better than the “legendary” 2009, huge praise showing just strong the best of ‘15 are.

The 2015 Malescot St. Exupéry is dense, powerful and rustic. Black cherry, smoke, leather, iron and dark spices hit the palate. Expansive, broad and juicy, the 2015 has more than enough depth to full out its broad shouldered frame. As it often is, the Malescot St. Exupéry is a bit rough around the edges, but time in bottle should take care of at least some of that. The 2015 finishes with lovely density and a blast of pure power. Michel Rolland consults. Tasted two times. Apr 2016, www.Vinous.com

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. Apr 2016, www.eRobertParker.com, Drink: 2025-2045

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 Sauvignon, 30% Merlot. Mar 2016, www.JamesSuckling.com

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. Mar 2016, James Molesworth, www.WineSpectator.com

Particularly glowing crimson. Light nose with some wildness about it. A hint of something animal! Distinctive wine that is a bit more daring than the average Margaux. Not the most tannic but very nicely balanced. Apr 2016, www.JancisRobinson.com, Drink: 2024-2038

A finesse of sweet lemon on the nose; very inviting. Pape Clément has achieved that difficult balance of keeping to the exotic and rich house style while still ploughing a seam of freshness. A very good wine. 50% Sauvignon Blanc, 40% Semillon, 10% Sauvignon Gris. Apr 2016, Jane Anson, www.Decanter.com, Drink: 2017-2028
