    September 24, 2018 - From magnum.

    This was extremely present and well-performing.

    Still a lot of forward fruit (cassis, raspberry and hints of strawberry) then tobacco, cedar and autumn forest floor. Great Margaux!

    February 13, 2017 - Medium brownish garnet in appearance, with lots of sediment. Cork was heavily soaked.

    Decanted for 4-5 hours for flavours to develop. It has balanced floral, blackcurrant and tertiary notes (of cedar, leather etc), but quite restrained / feminine like many Margaux wines. The acid level is a bit too low. The tannins almost resolved. Medium bodied. The texture is silky smooth. Medium finish.

    Seems like the wine is over the hills, but still enjoyable.

    May 3, 2015 - Got this for a steal on winebid.com so I figured not much to lose. Bottle was in excellent condition and a high fill. Opened and the cork was in good condition and about 3/4 soaked. Wine was a brick color / garnet. A bit of acid on the start and then, over time, a bit of older sweet dark fruits began to show. The wine was surprisingly very drinkable! Great deal on a classic older Bdx.

    March 13, 2015 - Mint on the nose, the palate is syrupy and jammy, only little fruit left, for some Margaux wines the -83 was stronger than the -82 but this one does not come across as a particularly strong vintage for this chateau.

    October 13, 2014 - The wine looks crimson colored. The legs are medium. There is moderate sediment in the bottle. It smells like dust. The body is medium. The wine has smooth texture. The wine finishes medium. The wine has low acidity.

    (Chateau Malescot St-Exupéry Margaux) Another wine showing some loss of colour. Mature. Raisins, cinnamon, nutmeg and sultana infused nose. lean texture, showing raisined fruit. Fully integrated, no grip at all, with a short finish. Enjoyable, but at the end of its life. No further improvement is to be expected here. Drink up.
