    A delicate and aromatic Margaux wine

    The estate

    In 1697, this property was sold to Simon Malescot, advisor to King Louis XIV. In 1827 the count of Saint-Exupery, great-grandfather of the famous aviator, bought it. The 300-year-old Third Classified Growth Château Malescot St Exupéry boasts one of the most beautiful terroirs of the Margaux appellation.

    The vineyard

    The Château Malescot St Exupéry vineyard covers 23 hectares in the heart of the Margaux appellation.

    Vinification and ageing

    Harvested manually in crates, the grapes are sorted in the vineyard and in the cellar. Carried out in temperature-controlled stainless steel and cement vats, alcoholic fermentation lasted 8 to 12 days without the addition of yeast and was followed by ageing on fine lees for 12 to 14 months in barrels (70% new oak) with a stirring of the lees.

    The blend

    This Château Malescot St Exupéry 2020 was made from a blend of Merlot (49%), Cabernet Sauvignon (44%), Cabernet Franc (4%) and Petit Verdot (3%).

    The tasting

    Colour

    This brilliant wine displays a dark garnet colour.

    Nose

    The powerful nose presents tasty notes of blackcurrant.

    Palate

    The palate seduces with its silky tannins, along with aromas of very ripe red fruits. Precise and very smooth, the finish reveals spicy notes and delicate complexity.
