“There is a delicacy about archetypal Margaux, and a sweet, haunting perfume, that can make it the most exquisite claret of all.”
– Hugh Johnson, legendary wine writer
You’ll see what Mr. Johnson means when you taste this gorgeous new discovery. It hails from Château de Malleret, a stunning, 16th-century estate at the southern end of Margaux. This under-the-radar château shows just how successful the region was in 2015, which Decanter calls “a sure-bet vintage that ticks all the boxes.” Thanks to the fantastic harvest, and the Midas touch of Bordeaux legend Stéphane Derenoncourt in the cellar, this velvety red has scooped major acclaim.
Top critic James Suckling rated it 93-94 points and raved: “A Margaux with soft tannins and opulent fruit. Full body and gorgeous. Serious new wine for me.” Drinking beautifully now (especially alongside tender beef roasts), Le Margaux du Château de Malleret will reward careful cellaring for the next decade.
