Nose: pepper, raspberry, cherry, light fragrant wood, orange peel, slight clove.
Taste: simple, but elegant and well made. Medium weight. Bitter olive, restrained tannins that linger and turn into green herbs (oregano? And others). Restrained sweet vanilla (almost like banana). The red fruit is in the background. This is good. 90.

2018 vintage. Second wine of Cru Classé Malescot Saint-Exupéry. Charming nose with ripe black cherries, raspberry jam and some floral hints. This medium-bodied, fruit-driven Margaux is drinking well already with silky tannin and good length. Not very complex, but a very charming wine indeed. Abv. 14%. Good value at less than half the price of the Grand Vin, even if I would rate the less expensive La Tour de Bessan (tasted alongside) higher. — 5 days ago
Still lots of tannin. Decant and leave for an hour or so. — 2 days ago
Brownish red. Surprisingly light bodied.. Blackcurrant, plum, cloves, liquorice. Medium tannins giving it some structure. — 13 days ago
