Planted to 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc and 5% Petit Verdot, Château Malescot Saint Exupéry was awarded third growth status in the 1855 classification in Bordeaux. Today their old vines average 40+ years planted in soils consisting of Pyrenean gravel are very well-placed in the appellation. Some of Malescot's vines lie right next to those of Chateau Margaux. Malescot is highly capable of turning out 'compelling wines that combine elegance and authoritative flavors' according to Robert Parker.  

The name of the property is taken from two former owners: Malescot and Saint Exupéry, the grandfather of the famous aviator-writer. Château Malescot Saint Exupéry adjoins part of Château Margaux's vineyard. The current owner has focused his efforts on improving the quality of this notable estate and has succeeded. From the beginning of the 1990s, the wines, with aromas of red and black fruits, and red and purple flowers, have become richer, more intense and more consistent. They are also now even more refined with delicate nuances to match the full-bodied character.

The 2019 Malescot St. Exupery is quite possibly the most elegant wine I have tasted here. Plush and radiant, the 2019 possesses notable depth with plenty of supporting structure beneath surprisingly tamed tannins. Gravel, dark red cherry/plum, spice, leather and dried flowers build over time. The 2019 is a magical wine endowed with tremendous character. Don't miss it.

The 2019 Malescot St. Exupery is generous and expressive, bursting with aromas of cassis, cherries and blackberries mingled with hints of loamy soil, dark chocolate and espresso roast. Full-bodied, broad and muscular, its fleshy core of fruit is framed by succulent acids and ripe, powdery tannins that assert themselves on the finish. This will reward a bit of bottle age with flamboyant drinking.

Shows steeped plum and cherry fruit flavors that are married to a melted licorice note, with a spine of singed balsam wood through the finish. Offers nice length and harnesses the heat of the vintage well. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2034.
