Chateau Malescot-St-Exupery 1998
€ 66,55 (incl. Vat)
A classic, this 1998 combines elegance with lovely textured, rich flavors of black cherries and currants, resulting in a quintessential Bordeaux that is unlike any other wine produced in the world. The wine possesses an ethereal lightness, layers of fruit, and a diaphanous framework. More nuances appear with each sip. Tasters will find notes of blackberries, plums, currants, tar, spice box, and minerals. A beautifully etched wine.
Coffee and blackberry aromas, with hints of toasted oak, some earth. Medium-bodied, with firm tannins and a lightly fruity finish. A little lean and tough, but interesting
Rene Gabriel rates this wine 17/20 points.
