Released this morning and offered en primeur at £444 per dozen bottles, Châteaux Malescot St Exupéry is a charming little gem of a property in the centre of Margaux, just a few hundred metres from Château Margaux itself. Owned by the Zugers since the 1950s, it has a family-owned feel, but the wines have been getting more and more attention in recent vintages.
Like Château Margaux itself, the 2021 is exceptionally true to the Margaux style with a savoury elegance. Galloni awards it 93-95 points, describing it as "another terrific wine from a property that has been trending towards finesse", whilst Suckling scores it 94-95 points.
