    September 6, 2017 - Pretty rich and robust for Margaux. Deep garnet color still. There is a lot of toasty new oak on the nose but it is accompanied by some lovely red berry fruit. Big fruit and lush texture is the result of an obviously modern elevage. Not overdone as there is a degree of balance. Very good but note the style - reduced complexity. Should drink well for years.

    August 30, 2017 - Brilliant aromas, very classical with cedar & leather. The palate shows age, as this is now a 13 yr old wine. No longer a wine to pair with steak or lamb, but rather pork or lighter meats. Tannins are super smooth.

    August 19, 2017 - Very impressive 2004. Bouquet of ripe red fruit, rose petals, and pen ink. Bright red fruit on the palate with light mineral notes and fresh acidity. Should last 5 - 10 more years. A real success in the vintage.

    August 12, 2017 - A warm rim developing, good nose of ripe raisins, upfront soft bramble fruit in complete balance. Acidity, tannins and fruit in harmony. I have a case of 8 5th growth 2004's and shared them with a local wine tasting group and this one came out clearly top. Surprisingly it has little lead association and I wouldn't at first thought it to be a claret. After an hour it softened slightly but extended its length. There were 2 others that came out next but I can't remember what they were, I'll have to go through the rest of those 2004's so I can report back - pressure, pressure...

    June 20, 2017 - I haven't had this in three years. It's turned the corner. Floral aromas. Polished. In flower. Red fruit, iron and stone. Clean. Short finish. Fine. 91

    (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.
