This 1999 is one of the finest efforts of the vintage. It offers up complex aromatics consisting of herbs, red and black fruits, minerals, acacia flowers, and licorice. The dark plum color does not possess the saturation of a vintage such as 2000, but this is pure seduction in a medium-bodied, beautifully balanced, nicely-textured effort. It is virtually impossible to duplicate such a wine anywhere else in the world.

About Malescot Saint-Exupery...
Château Malescot Saint-Exupery owes its name to its two previous proprietors: Malescot and Saint-Exupéry, grandfather of the famous aviator. After a period in which from 1960 to 1980 only mediocre wines had been produced, the present owners focussed their efforts on creating a high-quality product. As a result, their wines have evolved to equal, intense, with notes of fresh red fruits punctuated quality wines.
