Château-Malescot-St.-Exupery Margaux 2003
|Region||France, Bordeaux, Margaux|
The noteworthy, classic Margauxs from this estate remain under most consumers' radar. Displaying low acidity and a forward style, the exotic 2003 is undeniably fragrant, complex, and sexy. Its dark ruby/purple color is followed by sumptuous aromas of truffles, underbrush, plums, cassis, and a hint of figs. The tannin is sweet, and the texture is multilayered. This full-bodied, chewy, round, sensual Margaux should evolve gracefully for 15+ years. Bravo!
Plenty of blackberry and floral aromas with hints of new wood. Full-bodied, chewy and rich with round tannins and a long finish. Very tight. Lovely silky texture. Best after 2009. 6,300 cases made.
89-91 A surprising success from a lesser known chateau. This third growth has produced a finely balanced wine with black fruits and wood flavors.
