Chateau Malescot-St-Exupery 2004
€ 58,08 (in. Vat)
Although one of the appellation’s more tannic 2004s, the tannin is beautifully balanced by sweet black currant fruit, spring flower, camphor, and licorice notes. This impeccably well-made, medium-bodied Margaux reveals a lovely integration of acidity, tannin, and wood. Give it 2-3 years of bottle age, and drink it over the following two decades. This estate appears to be performing at a high quality level over recent vintages.
Interesting aromas of dried flowers and currant on the nose. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a round, caressing finish. Very balanced and stylish.
Rene Gabriel rates this wine 18/20 points.
