Cru bourgeois exceptionnel. Following numerous tastings, this premier wine is blended and displays all the magic of the great Médoc nectars: depth, balance and elegance united in subtle harmony, with excellent keeping qualities.
Made from 36% Cabernet-Sauvignon, 54% Merlot and 10% Petit Verdot, the 2014 vintage benefited from gentle fermentations with moderate and regular punching down. The malolactics took place in barrels, 35% of which were new oak, where it continued to mature for 14 months. Tasting
With a garnet color, 2014 presents an intense nose of blackcurrant, blackberry and raspberry of great maturity. Molten notes of roasting and mocha give it great elegance and added complexity. The mouth perfectly balanced between alcohol and acidity settles without heaviness or aggressiveness. After a dense attack, it evolves on a beautiful tight and silky tannic structure until a long aromatic and dense finish. A set with elegant power. Pair it with a piece of grilled beef or a leg of lamb. Guard It can be kept for 10 years or more.
Owned by Vignobles Austruy since 2012, the Château Malescasse is a wonderful example of the timeless traditional virtues of the great wines of the Haut-Médoc. Situated between Margaux and Saint-Julien, overlooking the commune of Lamarque, it is renowned for the quality of its wines and its superb terroir. Here, on the fine rolling gravel hillsides of the Médoc which give the great wines of Bordeaux their unique identity, Merlots and Cabernets live together in harmony.
