Margaux Chateau Malescot 3eme Cru Classe Aoc 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

his is very pure in style on the nose, and rather expressive, with a wealth of deep cassis fruit. Dense and a little spicy, pure and rounded, but with a little less texture and depth than I was expecting. Nevertheless, it is quite grippy, firm and structured, and that grip comes out a lot on the finish. Firm with a good presence of acidity. Good wine but there are some that overshadow it in this tasting.

Smoke and tabac nose. Floral with some red berries too. Tabac, dry and woody with dark fruit (blackberries and dark cherry). Very tannic.

Deep ruby in the glass. Dark and loamy kirsch aromas, as well as cassis. Loads of black and red berry fruit. On the palate, it's fruit forward. Lush and extracted with big tannin and fruit. It's layered with nice acid. Enjoyable with lush red and black fruit laced with oak. Really nice. 4/14/12

Dark ruby core with a rich, bright ruby rim. Chalky red cherries and cinnamon are accented by light floral and red raspberry notes, with underlying aromas of wet peat. Sweet, lush and full on the palate with rich berry fruits up front. Great body thr... Mike Supple. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2006 Malescot-St-Exupery 3000ml
