About Chateau Malescot St. Exupery
Looking back on the history of this Second Growth, 1955 is the all important year, the year that Paul and Roger Zuger bought Chateau Malescot St. Exupery and resurrected it from the shadows to the star it is today.
93 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 2008
($125-$190; 13.8% natural alcohol) Bright ruby-red. Superripe berry and chocolate aromas, with a whiff of surmaturite Fat, sweet and large-scaled, offering extraordinary volume and an almost syrupy thickness leavened by surprisingly sound acidity. This saturates the entire mouth yet manages to avoid coming off as heavy. Finishes very long and sweet, with thoroughly integrated tannins. "The best vintage since 1961," notes Jean-Luc Zuger. "This is the kind of wine I like." He advises early drinkers to give this 2005 about four hours in a decanter.
