- Show All (60)
Dark ruby in the glass. Beautiful tell-tale Margaux nose. Rich, pretty berry laced with florals and eucalyptus with some oak spice. On the palate, currant, cassis and flowers. Pretty, earthy and lush. Great structure and balance. It's both pretty and powerful, with wonderful finesse. Beautiful wine! 4/14/12

Garnet core. Seductive blackberry and cassis fruit notes intemingle with mocha and wood spice nuances on the complex and dense nose. The palate is classic cabernet with flavors that build to a juicy mid-palate and fine-grained focused tannins on the finish. Still tight and packed with a gravel-laden mineral grip yet starting to show tertiary complexity in woodsy earthy flavors. Decant and enjoy this now with meat however it will continue to improve for the next decade at least. A must for the Bordeaux enthusiast and an unforgettable introduction for everyone else. Devon Magee.
This estate s finest effort - ever the 2005 Malescot St.-Exupery should be sought out by readers looking for intensity combined with superb richness fascinating elegance and a surreal concoction of blue and red fruits a silky texture and a delicate yet powerful wine that builds incrementally never becoming overwrought. This dense purple-colored medium to full-bodied tour de force in winemaking is already displaying remarkable complexity. It should only get better over the next decade and will last through 2030. I would not be surprised to see this wine merit a few more points with additional aging. Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.
Exhibits blackberry, mineral, currant and dark chocolate. Full and velvety, with lots of fruit and chewy tannins. Long and caressing, with incredibly sweet fruit and tannins on the finish. Goes on for minutes. A thoroughly gorgeous wine. Best after 2015. 6,615 cases made.
Bright ruby-red. Superripe berry and chocolate aromas with a whiff of surmaturite Fat sweet and large-scaled offering extraordinary volume and an almost syrupy thickness leavened by surprisingly sound acidity. This saturates the entire mouth yet manages to avoid coming off as heavy. Finishes very long and sweet with thoroughly integrated tannins. "The best vintage since 1961 " notes Jean-Luc Zuger. "This is the kind of wine I like." He advises early drinkers to give this 2005 about four hours in a decanter. Stephen Tanzers IWC.
