Winemaker Notes

A delicate Malescot which makes it a gourmet wine despite a tight tannic structure. We will have to wait for this vintage to fully express the freshness of its cabernets supportedby a body full of merlots. As for the Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, they are like salt and pepper which densify and reveal this wine.
Blend: 54% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Franc, 5% Petit Verdot
The Barrel Sample for this wine is under 14% ABV.

*Please note that the price on Wine.com of this 2019 Bordeaux Future does not include any tariffs. As of June 2020, there remains a 25% tariff imposed on French wines below 14% Alcohol-by-Volume by the U.S. and approved by the World Trade Organization related to the Airbus/Boeing dispute. We are hopeful that this is a short-term tariff which will not be in place when the wine is ready to be imported into the U.S., as Bordeaux Futures typically ship 2-years after they are offered. Should tariffs still be in effect when the wine is ready to be imported, we will contact affected customers with an update to our plans and timing.

James Suckling
Wow. This is so perfumed and mesmerizing with currant, floral and blackberry character. It’s full-bodied, yet so refined and polished with wonderfully fine-grained and crafted tannins. The finish goes on and on.
Barrel Sample: 96-97

The 2019 Malescot St. Exupéry is richer and more flamboyant on the nose compared to its Margaux peers with ravishing red berry fruit, vanilla, iodine and touches of cassis, becoming increasingly floral with aeration. The palate has a cashmere texture on the entry matched by well judged acidity. Wonderful cohesion here, harmonious and focused with veins of black pepper and allspice towards the finish that feels reassuringly long. Deee-licious! –Neal Martin
Barrel Sample: 95-97
RP 96
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The deep garnet-purple colored 2019 Malescot St. Exupery charges out of the gate with vibrant notes of crushed red and black currants, warm blackberries and Morello cherries plus suggestions of pencil lead, cedar chest, clove oil and wild mushrooms with a waft of fertile loam. Medium-bodied, the palate has an enticingly energetic skip in its step, delivering mouth-coating red and black berry layers with plenty of earthy sparks and a firm, fine-grained texture, finishing on a lingering exotic spices note. Don't let the flamboyant fruit at this early stage fool you—there is a serious backbone to this wine, which should offer a good 30+ years of cellaring potential. Rating: (94 - 96)+

D 92
Decanter
This is enjoyable and has been well handled, offering blackberry fruit with a brambled hedgerow edge that suggests both plenty of juice and also a slightly rustic edge to the tannins. It gives the wine an unfussy quality that emphasises the floral aromatics.

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").

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.
