    January 8, 2017 - I was skeptical of this wine before but I'm bound to admit it's come along well. The ripe, cherry-dominated fruit is still upfront, this is no shrinking violet, but the vibrancy is not off-putting, it's appealing. Where the wine has really improved is after the brightness of the attack, where it now reveals true Margaux elegance, along with a persistent and satisfying finish. So good stuff indeed - and although modern, not hampered by Lascombes-style oak.

    December 31, 2016 - Perfekt gereifter Wein und aktuell sehr gut zu trinken. Schön eingebundene Tannine, harmonisch und elegant mit Fruchtnoten. Etwas Kirsche und Schwarzbeere, Cassis und etwas Röstaromen.

    December 17, 2016 - From Coravin and a bottle bought at auction. A nose of tartish red fruit, Seems slightly disjointed, not in harmony right now. In the mouth it's rather simple and a lot of earthy character. The mid palate seems a bit hollow and the finish is on the tart side as well. Gets a little better with 2-3 hours of air but never really comes together. Had expected a bit more. 87-88p for now.

    December 10, 2016 - Cracked open the case, popped, and poured. Still very youthful. Deep, dark purple/black color. The bouquet bloomed beautifully. It borders on a "big" wine to me. Earthy, has the type of edge to it that we would come to expect from the 2004 vintage. It seems like a nice merging between traditional and modern Margaux. Hopefully I'll be able to hold off on the remaining 11 bottles and drink them over the next 15 years or so. Rating: 93 points.

    November 27, 2016 - Elegant Margaux which has arrived to maturity.
    No aeration.
    Dark red color with orange red reflect on the side.
    Nose of coked fruit in the mouth, flavor of leathers, smoked, cherry jam...
    velvet texture, tannins perfectly integrated
    Medium to long finish,

    (Chateau Malescot St-Exupéry Margaux) Very closed down. Fine texture and weight on the palate though, with well knit, supple, velutinous tannins. Lots of texture and presence here, with firm acidity. The character is difficult to assess in such a closed state, but this will be wonderful after a at least a decade in the cellar.
