Château Malescot St. Exupéry Margaux 3ème Grand Cru Classé

Wine Description

(2012 Vintage) This is soft and pretty with currant and berry character and hints of wet earth. Full body, with fine tannins and a fresh and lively finish. Refined and beautiful. Juicy and long. Sweet fruit in the center palate.

    Dark purple color turning violet at the rim with a rich berry, bramble and cola on the nose. The palate is full but wonderfully balanced with bright acidity yet generous on flavors of currant, plum, and kirsch with hints of leather, herbs de Provence, and seductive Margaux earth. Very rounded texture up to the mid palate, then slightly grips with soft tannin towards the long, enchanting finish with hints of tobacco. This is an amazing wine, and one of the best coming from this appellation. Drink now until 2020.

    Drank with Vickie Beuerle. Incredibly good and typical Margaux. Great nose of truffles and earth, forest floor. Very smooth and elegant wine, what a treat.
