A Class Act 97 Decanter: 2020 Chateau Malescasse Cru Bourgeois Exceptionnel Haut Medoc

We couldn’t believe that we got our hands on a Chateau Malescasse! We had to tell you all about it — it’s flying off the shelves already! If you’re looking for amazing quality and value in Bordeaux, here it is.

It’s not every day that a Chateau Malescasse comes around …It’s a knockout Bordeaux. Prestige like this comes in so many forms, it’s hard to know where to start!

To start, it's important to highlight that this wine is among an elite group of only 14 out of 300 châteaux distinguished with the prestigious "Cru Bourgeois Exceptionnel" designation.

And on top of that, the specific vintage has been showered with praise from critics!

The 2020 received 97 points from Vinous Media and Decanter - a score that has everybody talking! The 2020 vintage was like no other and is considered one of the best vintages in recent memory in Bordeaux. The quality of this vintage is unmatched and this Chateau Malescasse is leading the way from the Medoc!

This gem is nestled in the beautiful village of Lamarque, where vineyards flourish in renowned gravelly soils, with a great dedication to Cabernet Sauvignon. Led by a team of passionate individuals, including Stéphane Derenoncourt as a wine consultant, Chateau Malescasse embodies the harmonious balance and brilliance of Bordeaux's Haut-Médoc region. With expertise garnered from renowned estates like Chasse-Spleen and Château Latour, this team is dedicated to preserving the legacy of Chateau Malescasse and crafting wines that captivate the senses.

So for a wine of this caliber, you’ll pay nothing less than a couple hundred bucks in other parts of Bordeaux. With the team, the vintage and the score, it’s understandable, right? But we’d like you to experience this exceptional wine for an affordable price.
