2005 Malescot-St-Exupéry, Margaux (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1020979 97 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Exhibits blackberry, mineral, currant and dark chocolate. Full and velvety, with lots of fruit and chewy tannins. Long and caressing, with incredibly sweet fruit and tannins on the finish. Goes on for minutes. A thoroughly gorgeous wine. *Top 100 Wines of 2008, Highly Recommended* (JS) Inner quote mark (3/2008)

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark A beautiful wine, once again, from this property that has been on a superb qualitative roll for several decades. Dense ruby/purple with notes of graphite, background oak, youthful crème de cassis and blackberry fruit as well as a floral underpinning, it is medium to full-bodied, textured, rich and impressive. Still in a somewhat adolescent stage, it should hit full maturity in another 2-3 years and last at least two decades. (RP) Inner quote mark (6/2015)

93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Bright ruby-red. Superripe berry and chocolate aromas, with a whiff of surmaturite Fat, sweet and large-scaled, offering extraordinary volume and an almost syrupy thickness leavened by surprisingly sound acidity. This saturates the entire mouth yet manages to avoid coming off as heavy. Finishes very long and sweet, with thoroughly integrated tannins. 'The best vintage since 1961,' notes Jean-Luc Zuger. 'This is the kind of wine I like.' He advises early drinkers to give this 2005 about four hours in a decanter. (ST) Inner quote mark (5/2008)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Mid crimson without great colour concentration. Sweet, creamy nose. Then a pretty chewy cassis palate. Absolutely masses of tannins. This should come right in the end. But it certainly needs time. This may always be a bit chunky and less sophisticated than some but not overworked in any way. 17/20 Inner quote mark (1/2015)
