CHATEAU MALESCOT ST. EXUPERY - Margaux Grand Cru Classe, Bordeaux - France

Third Classified Growth in 1855. It was on the 5th of February 1827 that Count Jean-Baptiste Saint-Exupéry bought Château Malescot. None other than the great-grandfather of aviator and writer Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, he decided to give luster to the château by adding his name to it. It was the 1st of June 1955 that Paul-Roger Zuger took over the 7ha. property. After 30 years of sustained efforts and attention, the coat of arms of Malescot has got back its rank and its craving for always "aiming higher". From 1994, the son of Roger Zuger, Jean-Luc, manages this vineyard and the wine-making process.

Critique Review

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.
