Château Malescot Saint-Exupéry 2009 - 3rd Grand Cru Classé of the Margaux appellation
This Margaux is one of the most underrated although it is regularly cited as one of the best and has been for more than 20 years. The production of "only" 120.000 bottles allows its owner, Mr. Jean-Luc Zugger, to produce wines of a high and regular quality.
The wines are very fine, spicy, not "that easy" and have not followed the trend of concentrated and sweet Bordeaux. You can enjoy this wonderful 2009 today after a good decanting or wait for a good decade.
