Winemaker Notes

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
V 95
Vinous
The 2021 Malescot St. Exupéry is another terrific wine from a property that has been trending towards finesse. The 2021 represents another step in that direction, helped by the vintage, of course. Red cherry, iron, blood orange, spice, tobacco and cedar build as this mid-weight, savory Margaux shows off its considerable charms. Pretty floral top notes accent the finish. Tasted two times. –Antonio Galloni
Barrel Sample: 93-95
JS 95
James Suckling
A tight and focused young red with redcurrant and blackberry character. It’s medium-bodied with racy and fine tannins and a linear, focused finish. Lots going on, yet it’s tight and energetic.
Barrel Sample: 94-95
RP 94
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2021 Malescot St. Exupery is a terrific effort, offering up aromas of sweet cassis and plums mingled with notions of licorice, espresso roast and toasty oak. Medium to full-bodied, ample and fleshy, it's impressively layered, with a sweet core of fruit, ripe tannins and lively acids. The dramatic style of the château has worked very well with the cooler, later-maturing vintage. The blend is 49% Cabernet Sauvignon, 38% Merlot, 8% Cabernet Franc and 5% Petit Verdot.

Jeb Dunnuck
Beautifully balanced, the 2021 Château Malescot Saint Exupéry is a classic, impressive 2021 that's worth seeking out. Darker fruits, spice, dried herbs, and a kiss of flowers all emerge on the nose, and it's medium-bodied, has ripe tannins, and shows the pretty, graceful style of the vintage.
Barrel Sample: 91-94
D 90
Decanter
High-toned and almost sharp fruit aspects on the palate but reigned back by freshness and fine tannins that provide a soft, supportive base. There is concentration but not so much weight in the mid-palate at the moment, rather the flavours are more lifted and aerial giving tone and nuance without so many layers. A little bit rustic also on the finish with some green pepper, clove and cinnamon coming through. Will no doubt harmonise and expand over ageing.

Chateau Malescot St. Exupery, France
Chateau Malescot St. Exupery Winery Image
Chateau Malescot St. Exupery owest its name to two former owners: Simon Malescot, a royal councillor to the Bordeaux parliment, who acquired the estate in 1697, and Count Jean-Baptiste de Saint-Exupery, who owned it from 1827 to 1853.

Paul Zuger and his son, Rojer, purchased the chateau, located in the middle of the town of Margaux, in June 1955. After more than thirty years of unstinting efforts, Malescot St. Exupery's coat of arms has never been truer: Semper Ad Altum ("Ever Higher").

Bordeaux, France

Silky, seductive and polished are the words that characterize the best wines from Margaux, the most inland appellation of the Médoc on the Left Bank of Bordeaux.

Margaux’s gravel soils are the thinnest of the Médoc, making them most penetrable by vine roots—some reaching down over 23 feet for water. The best sites are said to be on gentle outcrops, or croupes, where more gravel facilitates good drainage.

The Left Bank of Bordeaux subscribes to an arguably outdated method of classification but it is nonetheless important in regards to history of the area. In 1855 the finest chateaux were deemed on the basis of reputation and trading price—at that time. In 1855, Chateau Margaux achieved first growth status, yet it has been Chateau Palmer (officially third growth from the 1855 classification) that has consistently outperformed others throughout the 20th century.

Chateau Margaux in top vintages is capable of producing red Cabernet Sauvignon based wines described as pure, intense, spell-binding, refined and profound with flavors and aromas of black currant, violets, roses, orange peel, black tea and incense.

Other top producers worthy of noting include Chateau Rauzan-Ségla, Lascombes, Brane-Cantenac, and d’Issan, among others.

The best wines of Margaux combine a deep ruby color with a polished structure, concentration and an unrivaled elegance.

One of the world’s most classic and popular styles of red wine, Bordeaux-inspired blends have spread from their homeland in France to nearly every corner of the New World. Typically based on either Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot and supported by Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot, the best of these are densely hued, fragrant, full of fruit and boast a structure that begs for cellar time. Somm Secret—Blends from Bordeaux are generally earthier compared to those from the New World, which tend to be fruit-dominant.
