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.
91-94 Points | International Wine Cellar , May/June 2011
(58% cabernet sauvignon, 30% merlot, 8% cabernet franc and 4% petit verdot) Good, full ruby-purple. Flamboyant, pure aromas of cassis, violet, gunflint and vanilla on the enticing nose. Then sweet, plush and broad, stuffed with opulent ripe dark berry, candied violet and licorice flavors. The melting tannins on the impressively long finish give this wine an early accessibility, but it also has the structure and weight to age extremely well. An excellent Malescot Saint-Exupery, even if it tastes more like Pomerol than Margaux. Purists may like it less than I did.
