Mesmerizing Margaux

Malescot Bottles

A few weeks ago, we had the pleasure of sitting down with Malescot St.-Exupéry's owners, Jean-Luc and Françoise Zuger, for a vertical tasting of the estate's phenomenal Margaux. What the event showed was wines of great richness, pure and fragrant, very forward, but framed by excellent tannins and masterful oak integration - we were completely smitten with the wines and felt you should not miss this opportunity to score back and current vintages of well-priced, exceptional Margaux. You'll find below our comments on the wines in italic, followed by notes and points from the Wine Advocate, and, for more information on the estate, you can click HERE. Please allow a good three months for delivery as the wines are coming straight from the estate in a temperature controlled container.

Today we have the latest release of de Marchi's two flagship wines - the delicious, fragrant and bright Chianti Classico, and the deep, silky, powerful Cepparello.
