2010 Château Malescot St-Exupéry, Cru Classé Margaux

An appealing nose of dark and red berries, with a touch of spice coming through. On the palate, the tannins are quite robust and structural, but balanced by a rich core spice-laden red fruit and a zip of acidity that gives this a lovely sense of freshness and lift.

TASTING NOTES

Gorgeous, flowery, classic Margaux once again, the 2010 Malescot St.-Exupery continues to show virtually no toasty oak, given the impeccable balance and full-bodied, full-throttle style it possesses. Black raspberries, creme de cassis and spring floral notes intermixed with forest floor and a hint of charcoal are followed by an opulent, sexy, full-bodied wine whose tannins have become much sweeter, while the wine is less restrained yet still exuberant and impressive. This is a phenomenal example once again for this estate, harmonious in every sense of style, extraordinarily long, rich and ageworthy.
