Wine tasting notes

The 2016 is another wonderful effort packed with cool black and red berries with persistent and serious tannins laced with cranberry and cassis. This is another large-scale Malescot with excellent aging potential

Food matching

Go together beautifully with meat dishes and cheeses.

Expert reviews

Wine Advocate/Robert Parker () - 95 pts

Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, the 2016 Malescot St. Exupery sings of cassis, fragrant earth, tobacco and lilacs with a compelling waft of mocha. Medium to full-bodied and strutting loads of expressive fruit layers at this youthful stage, it's framed by ripe, grainy tannins and oodles of freshness, finishing with great length and depth.


Vinous/Antonio Galloni (2016) - 95 pts

The 2016 Malescot Saint Exupéry is fabulous. Powerful and explosive on the palate, the 2016 offers serious intensity, but it also appears to be holding back quite a bit of its potential. Moreover, what impresses me most is that in 2016, intensity is delivered more with finesse than with the brutish power that is such a signature of Malescot. Deep and resonant, but also remarkably polished, the 2016 Malescot is a winner. Hints of iron, smoke, cedar, tobacco and scorched earth add nuance, but it is the wine's sense of poise that is most remarkable. I loved it. Tasted three times. Antonio Galloni

Tasted blind. Interesting, layered nose. Opulent and sweet. A bit like candied leather: sweet and tannic. Rather awkward tannins.


James Suckling (2016) - 97 pts

A stunning red with currants, blackberries, roses and violets. Medium to full body, ultra-fine tannins and polish and finesse to the powerful tannins. A real stunner. Better than 2015. Take a serious look at it, beginning 2024.
