2009 Malescot-St-Exupéry, Margaux 6-Pack in OWC (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1428113 98 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark A wine with intense spice and berry character, with hints of sweet tobacco. It changes all the time from flowers to fruit and wet earth. Full-bodied, with super fine tannins and ripe fruit. It's long and juicy with lovely fruit. Super long and beautiful, with fine tannins that last for minutes. Tight now, but juicy and gorgeous. Best ever from here. Try in 2020. Inner quote mark (2/2012)

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark An inky/purple color is followed by notes of Asian plum sauce, forest floor, creme de cassis, black raspberries and a floral component that is unusual for a Margaux. A wine of exceptional intensity and purity with a full-bodied, sumptuous texture, lots of fresh vibrancy and excellent definition, this beautiful 2009 exhibits high but sweet tannin. It is more sexy than the 2005 was at a similar age, although their level of extract and concentration is relatively equal. Something about the 2009 reminds me of a Margaux version of St.-Julien's Leoville Poyferre ... if that makes any sense. (RP) Inner quote mark (12/2011)

94 points Decanter

Outer quote mark Finely concentrated red and black fruits on the nose, really fine vineyard expression of controlled cassis and a touch of oak. Lots of vibrancy, vigour and purity, lots of density and length, and still the Margaux elegance. A very fine wine now and will be for a long time. (SS) Inner quote mark (6/2015)

94 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark This is beautiful, with smoldering tar, espresso and tobacco leaf notes fully melded together, while the core of crushed plum, steeped black currant and blackberry fruit sits in reserve. A twinge of iron adds extra length and definition on the finish. Very suave. Approachable now, but with plenty of stuffing and balance for the cellar as well. (JM) Inner quote mark (6/2012)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Tasted blind. Mid crimson. Just the right side of volatile but very winning and opulent. More 2009 than Margaux. A little dry and chewy for the moment. Massive volume and finish. 17/20 points (JR) Inner quote mark (3/2019)
