We will keep this one short and sweet. Here is a nice ex-cellar Bordeaux back-vintage from Margaux. A great bottle that is drinking now, perfect for those that like to purchase wines that don't need lots of cellar time. It is showing great and should be suitable for another ten years if you don't get to it right away. The 2014 is A powerful blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot, and 15% Cabernet Franc from one of Margaux's best value producers. Check out the three great notes below!
James Suckling 96 points! "Dark currants and berries with walnuts on the nose. Follows through to a full body, integrated tannins and a gorgeous finish. Exciting. Wow"
Antonio Galloni 93+ points! "The 2014 Malescot Saint Exupéry is powerful, rich and explosive. One of the more exuberant, flamboyant Margaux that readers will come across, the Malescot exudes serious depth and intensity. Black cherry, plum, smoke, licorice and dark spice meld into the deep, succulent finish. The 2014 needs time in bottle, but it is impressive and also highly promising."
Jeb Dunnuck 93 points! "I put the 2014 Malescot Saint Exupery up with the crème de la crème of this vintage and it offers a wonderfully complete, balanced, concentrated style offers loads of class and personality. With loads of blackcurrant and black cherry fruits intermixed with notions of graphite/lead pencil, spring flowers, and damp earth, it’s medium to full-bodied, beautifully pure, layered, and ripe, with sweet tannin and rock-solid underlying acidity. This is a straight up gorgeous, classy, elegant Margaux that’s going to benefit from 2-4 years of bottle age and shine for 15-20 years."
