Dear Oenophile,

Bargain Chateau Margaux?! Yes, please!
Malescot can trace its roots back to roughly 1616 (it always blows my mind to type vintages like that) and was always considered a solid, yet unexciting wine. Within the last 10 years or so, the winery has reinvented itself, invested tons of money, and turned the whole thing around. These days they make a wine that is not only at the highest level, but it is a HUGE bargain compared to many of its neighbors in Margaux!

We SCORED an amazing little parcel of magnums last week, and are thrilled to present them to you - ready for the cellar, direct from the Chateau, with 8 years of age done for you!! A MUST... direct from Bordeaux!!

2009 CHATEAU MALESCOT ST. EXUPERY MARGAUX 1.5 LITER --- $229!! JS98, WA96

JS98: "A wine with intense spice and berry character, with hints of sweet tobacco. It changes all the time from flowers to fruit and wet earth. Full-bodied, with super fine tannins and ripe fruit. It`s long and juicy with lovely fruit. Super long and beautiful, with fine tannins that last for minutes. Tight now, but juicy and gorgeous. Best ever from here. Try in 2020."

WA96: "An inky/purple color is followed by notes of Asian plum sauce, forest floor, creme de cassis, black raspberries and a floral component that is unusual for a Margaux. A wine of exceptional intensity and purity with a full-bodied, sumptuous texture, lots of fresh vibrancy and excellent definition, this beautiful 2009 exhibits high but sweet tannin. It is more sexy than the 2005 was at a similar age, although their level of extract and concentration is relatively equal. Something about the 2009 reminds me of a Margaux version of St.-Julien's Leoville Poyferre ... if that makes any sense. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2040. This is another fabulous effort from an estate that has been doing extraordinary work over the last 10-15 years. I enjoyed the 2009 as much as the 2005, perhaps even slightly more because while it has structure, the tannins are less aggressive and there is more succulence, flesh and texture in the 2009."

What can I say?? Awesome! FIRST COME, FIRST SERVED...! Arrives this summer!
