Oh, Margaux, this vintage looks so good on you. This show-pony prances with a bouquet of blackberry, lilacs, chocolate and spice, but all of that glorious opulence is reined in by a gentle but firm hand. The medium-bodied palate has ample structure to contain the ripe and succulent tannins, plus marvelous salinity and precision on the finish. As Bordeaux go, this is a solid steal that comes highly recommended.

James Suckling

Solid red with blackberry, blueberry, chocolate and spice. Lots of hazelnut, too. It’s full-bodied with chewy, polished tannins and a long, flavorful finish. Best of the trilogy vintages?

Wine Advocate

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.
