2010 Malescot-St-Exupéry, Margaux (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1067114 95 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark A wine with beautiful strawberry and chocolate with hints of pie crust. It's full-bodied with super integrated tannins and a long, long finish. Needs at least four to five years to really come together but so wonderful. Not the amazing 2009 but clearly outstanding. Inner quote mark (2/2013)

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark 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. Three to four years of bottle age will do wonders to make it more accessible, but this wine is set for 25-30 years of longevity. (RP) Inner quote mark (2/2013)

94 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark This delivers a slightly chewy-edged feel, with charcoal and roasted alder hints holding sway over the core of steeped damson plum, black currant and anise notes. Shows grip through the finish, but stays long, featuring a lovely backdrop of tar and warm stone. The excellent range and drive should pay off in the cellar. (JM) Inner quote mark (3/2013)

92-94 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Sweet and juicy, a wine that has the potential to be delicious. The tannins are certainly prominent, although with good sweetness. Finally very structured. (RV) Inner quote mark (6/2011)

93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Good deep ruby-red. High-pitched aromas of raspberry, cherry liqueur, flowers and cedary cigar box. A sweet, dense midweight with penetrating red cherry and floral flavors accented by sound acidity. Nothing thick or heavy about this wine but it possesses plenty of chewy depth. Boasts excellent early balance but has the firm, sweet tannins and finishing bite and length for at least a couple decades of positive evolution in bottle. (ST) Inner quote mark (7/2013)

K&L Notes

95 points Lisa Perotti-Brown in Wine Advocate: "Deep garnet colored, the 2010 Malescot St. Exupery wafts gracefully out of the glass with scents of potpourri, raspberry coulis and kirsch over a cassis and warm plums core with a touch of pencil shavings. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is packed with juicy red and black fruits, sporting a firm, fine-grained texture and oodles of freshness. It has a good, long and remarkably pure finish." (3/2020)

Mint and cocoa, with cassis and spice on the palate and finish. At UGC: I'm really partial to the wines from Margaux as a whole in 2010, and this is one of my favorites. The nose is a heady blend of cassis, plum, graphite, floral aromas and potpourri. The palate shows big, chewy tannins, with chocolate, licorice and more potpourri, all of which linger on the long finish.

This has a lush texture, with meaty undertones on palate. At UGC: The wine showed exceptionally well at the UGC tasting and was packed with ripe fruit. This property is on a roll.

Another seamless wine that shows lush black cherries, mocha and spice. The wine is velvety on the mid-palate with silky tannins.

Seamless and plush, with hints of chocolate and mint on the nose and chocolate-covered cherry flavors on the palate. This wine is hedonistic, sexy and tough to spit out.

Full and lush, with violets, cocoa, black cherry, plum. Full-bodied, with medium++ very fine tannins. Finishes with a gorgeous hint of almond blossom. Elegant and classy.
