Chateau Malescot-St-Exupery 2001
€ 67,70 (in Vat)
|Condition||From Original Wooden Case|
Given how splendid recent vintages have been, I expected a bit more from Malescot Saint-Exupery, clearly a property on the rebound over the last decade or so. The elegant 2001 is Margaux-like in its fragrant plum, cassis, and floral-scented nose. Medium-bodied, light, but pretty, it offers notes of red and black fruits, supple tannin, and a polished, straightforward finish.
Winespectator / James Suckling (88)
A delicious red with blackberry and hints of dark chocolate. Medium-bodied, with fine tannins and a fresh finish. Balanced and refined.
Rene Gabriel rates this wine 18/20 points.
