Critic reviews
"Sporting a deep purple-black color, the 2020 Malescot St. Exupery prances out of the glass with showy scents of ripe black and red currants, black cherries, raspberry leaves and ground cloves, plus wafts of lilacs and tilled soil. Medium to full-bodied, the palate delivers mouth-coating black and red fruit layers with a firm, grainy texture and well-balanced acidity, finishing on a lingering fragrant-earth note."
Lisa Perrotti-Brown, May 2021

"The 2020 Malescot St. Exupery has a beguiling bouquet with red cherries, crushed strawberry, blueberry and iodine - très Margaux. Lovely delineation and focus. The palate is medium-bodied with very fine, slightly chalky tannins, licorice-tinged red fruit, quite structured and almost muscular towards the finish - a long-term Margaux that will repay cellaring. You can already feel this tightening up. Excellent. Tasted twice with consistent notes."
Neal Martin, December 2022

"The 2020 Malescot Saint Exupéry is absolutely gorgeous. Deep and silky (that is not a typo) Malescot shows a level of finesse that is truly remarkable. There is still plenty of textural intensity, but also greater elegance than in the recent past. Succulent dark cherry, plum, licorice, incense and blood orange all run through this wonderfully sumptuous, expressive Margaux. Give this a few years in bottle. Superb."
Antonio Galloni, December 2022

"Ripe and fragrant with a creamy quality to the fruit. Smooth and seductive on the palate, the tannins dense but finely honed. Plenty of drive on the finish and freshness as well. Appealing now but should age."James Lawther, November 2022
