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.

($60) Full red-ruby. Musky aromas of currant, graphite, tobacco leaf, menthol, herbs and smoke are sexed up by a captivating candied quality. Densely packed and chewy but suave, with good peppery, herbal lift to the very ripe dark berry and mineral flavors. Not the ripest vintage ever for this wine, but that's not a bad thing as there's real energy to go with the broad texture.
