The 2015 Malescot St. Exupery has a ripe, perfumed bouquet of ample red fruit laced with allspice, cedar and warm gravel. The medium-bodied palate displays slightly chewy tannin and feels quite primal, requiring more bottle age to knit together. There is density and even brawn here, but counterbalancing grace and elegance are needed to complete the package. I suspect this will show much better in four or five years, hence the plus sign next to my score. Tasted blind at the Southwold 2015 Bordeaux tasting.
