Château Malescot St-Exupéry owes its name to two former owners: Simon Malescot, a royal councilor to the Bordeaux parliament, who acquired the estate in 1697, and Count Jean-Baptiste de Saint-Exupéry, who owned it from 1827 to 1853.
Paul Zuger and his son, Roger, purchased the château, located in the middle of the town of Margaux, in June 1955. After more than thirty years of unstinting efforts, Malescot St-Exupéry’s coat of arms has never been truer:
Semper Ad Altum (“Ever Higher”). The 45-hectare estate has 23.5 hectares of vines on a fine terroir that “overlooks the river” – indicative of the best vineyard sites according to an old local saying.
50 % Cabernet Sauvignon, 35 % Merlot, 10 % Cabernet franc, 5 % Petit Verdot
Medium to deep garnet-purple in color, it is redolent of warm red and black currants, kirsch and raspberry pie on the nose with floral wafts, tobacco and wild sage in the background plus a hint of pencil shavings.
Power and finesse, elegance and structure for a mouth that unfolds in a persistent length.
Medium-bodied, it is packed with expressive red and black fruits and is velvety and refreshing, finishing long.
Is an ode to refinement. A true benchmark for the Margaux appellation for a vintage full of promise.
