TYPE – Red
Malescot St Exupery production was minuscule (about 6000-7000 bottles a year) in Margaux, compared to Ch Palmer’s 20,000 bottles a year. So this was technically more legendary than Palmer 61 (many claimed to be 6* wines which I vigorously disagreed).
This has a terrific bouquet of aged dried flowers and potpourri on the nose, so elegant yet sexy. Palate was really superb, had all the weight and boldness of a bodybuilder but not oversized, really pleasant wine that has touched my soul.”
