Chateau Malescot-St-Exupery 2003
€ 71,39 (incl. Vat)
Showing no signs of age, this fully mature, dark plum/ruby-colored 2003 offers notes of forest floor, spring flowers, spice box and tobacco leaf. It possesses all the finesse one would expect, which is surprising in such a hot year. This medium-bodied Margaux should continue to drink well for a decade or more.
Plenty of blackberry and floral aromas with hints of new wood. Full-bodied, chewy and rich with round tannins and a long finish. Very tight. Lovely silky texture.
Rene Gabriel rates this wine 18/20 points.
