In 1697, this property was sold to Simon Malescot, advisor to King Louis XIV. In 1827 the count of Saint-Exupery, great-grandfather of the famous aviator, bought it. The 300-year-old Third Classified Growth Chateau Malescot St Exupery boasts one of the most beautiful terroirs of the Margaux appellation.
The Chateau Malescot St Exupery vineyard covers 23 hectares in the heart of the Margaux appellation.
After a scorching summer and a growing season with fantastic climatic conditions, the Margaux appellation produced a great vintage.
The winemaking and aging
Manual harvest carried out between September 25 and October 16. Alcoholic fermentation between 8 and 12 days in barrels.
The 2019 Malescot St Exupéry is characterized by a great delicacy, despite a powerful structure. It will be necessary to wait for this vintage to reveal the true freshness of the Cabernet and Merlot within its blend. Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot give the Malescot St Exupery 2019 a light salinity and good density.
