James Suckling: 95 points

This is a superb wine. I didn’t think it could be better than the 2015 but indeed it is. Full, layered

and sexy. It goes on for minutes with dense fruit, yet it’s also vivid and showcases sublime

tannins and acidity balance. Great finish. Barrel Sample: 98-99 Points

The Wine Advocate: 96 points

The 2016 Malescot-St-Exupery has an opulent, lavish and pure bouquet with billowing black

cherry and blueberry fruit, a touch of mint and graphite emerging with time. I love the delineation

to this Margaux. The palate is very well balanced, sensual and voluptuous in style, but that does

not detract from the fine structure here and the precision towards the finish. Everything seems

to be in its right place here; it is one of the best Malescot-St-Exupery that I have tasted and it is

wonderful. Barrel Sample: 94-96 Points

Wine Enthusiast: 94 points

This estate is really improving. The wine in this vintage is full of fragrant fruit, with the tannins

making a fine backdrop to the juiciness. It's going to be a fine medium-term wine.

Decanter: 93 points

Some coffee bean smudges across the nose give this a sexy, appealing edge right off the bat,

followed up by chewy tannins that manage to hold the by rich, deep, beautifully extracted fruit

without smothering it. This is one of the fuller expressions of the vintage, no question.
