    February 26, 2017 - Popped and poured, followed over a couple of hours with three during dinner (grilled rib eyes). Lovely and perfumed, rich red fruit with darker stirrings. Margaux is nice to share among women, in the way that St. Estephe is nice to share among men. Nice. My first of four.

    February 4, 2017 - Great fruit on the nose and palate, even before it was fully decanted. Dark purple color, slight tannins on the finish. There's a lot of life left in this wine.

    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.

    (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.
