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.
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!
