2019 Château Malescasse  (Haut-Médoc) 91

Smoky, with touches of espresso, licorice, spice and red fruits, the wine is round, soft, polished and with loads of sweet, juicy fruits. When the oak is fully integrated, this will be a much better wine. 90-92 Pts

Dark in color, fat, round, lush, concentrated, sweet and rich in texture, with a long blast of deep red and black fruits, licorice and chocolate in the mid-palate and finish. Long, plush and loaded with character, this is a steal for the price. 93 Points

How did they make a wine this good here is what I asked myself. Inky in color, the wine is lush, rich, deep and fruity, The tannins are polished and the dark red berries, earthy tobacco and espresso carry through to the long plummy finish. This should be easy to drink on release or with just a year or two of age. Value seekers should take note of this wine. 91-93 Pts

Very little fruit here, most of what you find is olives, earth and earth, with a dash of crisp berries. Drink up, as it's not getting better from here. 80 Points
