This morning starts with the superb Margaux property, Château Malescot Exupéry, which we are delighted to have picked up this superb and highly recommend wine @ £370.00 IB per case.
James Suckling awards an astonishing 97-98 and believes that this may be “better than the legendary 2009” which sells for £640.00 IB per case.
Neal Martin awards an impressive 93-95 and describes Malescot:
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.
