2006 Château Malescot St. Exupery

2006 Château Malescot St. Exupery – France, Bordeaux, Médoc, Margaux (2/6/2009)
Blackberries, chocolate, black coffee, leather and minerals on the quite modern but enjoyable nose. At this stage, the rather sweet tannins dominate the ripe black fruit; good acidity ensures much needed freshness; additional aromas of exotic spices, leather and black coffee turn this in a very tasty package. Similar in style to the 2004, but this offers more fruit and seems a bit broader. Might merit a higher score. (91 pts.)
