    July 13, 2019 - First bottle from a case bought en primeur. Decanted. Violets as I opened the bottle then blackcurrant with a hint of herbs. Later raspberry. Lots of mineral. Good body. Needs a couple more years for the tannins to fall out. Score could improve a lot.

    May 22, 2019 - This will warrant a higher score in 5-10 more years. Today, it is excellent, but still very youthful. Already showing secondary notes of tobacco, charcoal, concerntrated red fruit with a persistent but slightly grainy finish. Very Maragaux, but still needs time in bottle to reach full maturity.

    May 13, 2019 - MNB: Left Bank Bdx Communes (Home (Noe st)): (blind)
    Medium plus ruby, ruby rim.
    Strange nose - not very aromatic. Slightly burnt. Slight toast. Slight brett - earthy mushroomy fur. Vanilla - new oak with lots of toast. Eucalyptus-menthol (pyrazines? eugenol).
    Tannic, with tight blackcurrant and 100% new French oak.
    High tannins. 14%. Tight fruit. Savage but over time, the blackcurrant comes out more.

    2012 St. Estephe, $70. 65% cab, 30% merlot, 5% cab franc.
    2010 Malescot St. Exupery $100

    55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot with the remainder evenly split between Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot.

    February 3, 2019 - 3 hour decant showed how youthful this wine still is and the potential ahead. Good dark fruit and floral notes, vibrant acidity and length.

    December 31, 2018 - 3 hour decant (mag decanter). Wow is this bottle so different than the last and not in a good way. While it is pretty, floral and has backbone it has none of the utterly profound qualities of the last bottle opened a little over 1 1/2 years ago. This bottle came from a different provider than my usual JJ Buckley. Makes me wonder about authenticity or provenance. Perhaps the wine is just now in a dumb phase.

    (Chateau Malescot St-Exupéry (Margaux)) The 2010 is 58% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 8% Cabernet Franc and 4% Petit Verdot. Malescot is another concentrated wine this year, although with a very bright, crimson hue. The fruit has quite a fresh feel to it as well, quite bright and with a crystalline edge on the nose, but not lacking in density. Gently polished at the start, still with some post-fermentation aromas as well though. But a fine midpalate here, balanced, with really appealing and rather vigorous fruit, well defined and yet with body. A good firm fruit character on the finish, with a rounded structure. And a nice length to it. Beneath the embryonic shell I think there is a really nice wine lurking here, with great potential.
