    July 1, 2016 - Very classic Bordeaux nose, very lovely, more on the lean and elegant side, food friendly and fine.

    January 4, 2015 - Incredible nose of blackberry, pencil shavings, palate of same, creme de cassis, spice box, harmonious, elegant, characterful and balanced. Drink now.

    December 11, 2014 - Very stylish old school Bordeaux. I am not sure that this intended compliment is in vogue right now, as maximum extraction seems more the norm.
    Red brick and amber edging speak of age but the wine holds together beautifully. Spice, smoky oak and tobacco merge with a tender mouthfeel to make this wine a perfect partner for slow-cooked roast fowl. Sadly this bottle was my last ; a parting score of 89 seems the least I can do for this harmonious bottle of mature Margaux. It was as comfortable as an old friend.

    October 29, 2013 - Still dark purple in color with notes of creme de cassis, pencil shavings, earth, crushed rocks, spice box. The palate is quite rich, yet held together nicely with mouth watering acidity. The tannins are well integrated and not super noticeable. The finish is quite good. Overall very good wine and a good example of fairly food friendly bordeaux.

    April 2, 2013 - Really good Margaux. Opaque hue, big bouquet , leather , tobacco, cedar- then acid and blackberry. Silky tannins. Great wine for lamb, rabbit, or venison

    (Chateau Malescot St-Exupéry Margaux) A dark hue, not opaque though, and still with a good fresh-red tinge. Nose is lovely, notes of roasted meats, fleeting elements of cherries and blackcurrant fruit, but also darker and more maturing characteristics including black olives, game, rust and sweet, fresh tea leaves. A fine palate, fresh and light-footed rather than ponderous, moderate weight, cool but with good extract, almost supple towards the finish. Perhaps a bit lean in midpalate - will it fatten out? Delicious, well outside the creamy spectrum of modern Bordeaux, and a fine food wine. Still on the way up, too.

    (Chateau Malescot St-Exupéry Margaux) A dark, maturing but still vibrant hue. Good depth to the nose, which offers a little aniseed and bay leaf complexity to the spiced, macerated blackcurrant fruit. A lovely, cool entry, with nice extract and substance. A good grippy core of tannin, wrapped in black olive fruit. Balanced, elegant texture, and a fine persistence on the palate. Very drinkable now with a few hours in the decanter, but will only improve over the next ten years. Very good indeed.
