Ch Malescot Saint Exépury 2022
3e Grand Cru Classé
Vinous – Neil Martin – 93-95/100
The 2022 Malescot Saint Exupéry was picked from 19 September until 5
October, stopping over two weekends as it rained. Every parcel
contributed fruit to the Grand Vin and there is 14.5% alcohol. Raised in
70% new oak with most of the malo done in barrel, it has a fragrant
bouquet with red cherries, raspberry coulis, blueberry and violet scents.
The palate has a well-defined entry with sour cherry, raspberry,
blackcurrant and touches of marmalade. Not powerful, but harmonious
with a silky texture, this is a precision-tooled Margaux that will give 20 to
30 years of drinking pleasure.
Robert Parker The Wine Advocate – 93-95/100
Offering up aromas of rich blackberries, cassis, sweet spices, pencil shavings and creamy new oak, the 2022 Malescot St. Exupery is medium to full-bodied, rich and fleshy, with a broad attack that segues into a layered core of expressive fruit that’s framed by sweet, powdery tannins. A blend of 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot, this is one of the appellation’s most flamboyant wines, but it retains good balance and boasts a healthy pH of 3.65.
