Bordeaux Futures 2020 estimated arrival Spring 2023
95-97 James Suckling
"Solid red with blackberry, blueberry, chocolate and spice. Lots of hazelnut, too. It’s full-bodied with chewy, polished tannins and a long, flavorful finish. Best of the trilogy vintages?." (5/2021)
93-95 Jeb Dunnuck
"Lots of cassis, blackberries, toasted spices, and vanilla-tinged oak define the nose of the 2020 Château Malescot Saint Exupery, and it’s medium to full-bodied, round, and supple on the palate. With velvety tannins, terrific mid-palate depth, and the classic purity of fruit that’s the hallmark of the vintage, it builds nicely with time in the glass and is another incredibly impressive Margaux that will have two decades or more of prime drinking." (5/2021)
92-94 Wine Enthusiast
"This wine is dry, showing some extracted tannins. It is the weight of the black fruits that will redeem its initial massive structure. Acidity and hints of the blackberry fruits to come arrive at the end." (5/2021)
"Enjoyable black fruit aromatics on the nose, they do a good job here of soft pedalling the extraction on the attack, although by the mid palate we are in bitter chocolate and liquorice territory. Again, concentration and intensity is an overriding signature of the vintage. 3% Petit Verdot completes the blend. A yield of 31hl/ha." (5/2021)
