97 Point Margaux: 2018 Chateau Malescot St. Exupery Margaux

“In short, 2018 is a thrilling vintage with no shortage of legendary wines and I cannot imagine anyone who purchases these wines will be disappointed,” wrote wine critic Jeb Dunnuck, speaking of the 2018 Bordeaux. He went on to say, “It’s possible to find attractive, well-made, even outstanding, wines that punch well above their price points."

This is one of those outstanding wines. 97 points James Suckling points worth of excellence from winemaker Jean-Luc Zuger. His impressive skills and passion for the viticultural process result in wines that constantly nab high 90+pt wine scores from critical luminaries like Suckling, Robert Parker, and Antonio Galloni.

The full-bodied opulence and unbridled exuberance of this wine instantly remind us why Bordeaux wines—grown in famously gravelly, well-draining soils—matter so much to lovers of quality wine. There will be no better time than now to snatch up high quality 2018 Bordeaux at their best prices.
