Chateau Malescot St Exupery, Médoc, BordeauxChateau Malescot St. Exupéry
Chateau Malescot St-Exupéry as we know it today came about in 1955, when purchased by current owners Paul and Roger Zuger, but the estate has a much longer history than this suggests. Records indicate wine was produced here as far back as 1608, and it was during the 17th Century that the true origins of the estate lie. In 1697 the land and chateau was sold by Louise Ecoisses to Simon Malescot, King's Counsel to Louis XIV at the Parliament of Bordeaux. Malescot not only gave his name to the property, he and his descendants also added a large house together with numerous outbuildings. Under the Malescot family this was very much a working estate, and they enjoyed control over the estate through the Revolution. Eventually, however, the family had to sell the property, and this was in 1827, to Count Jean-Baptiste St-Exupéry. Not to be outdone by the Malescots, the estate soon became Chateau Malescot St-Exupéry. The property subsequently came to auction in 1853, put up for sale by St-Exupéry's widow. At about this time the property was classified as a third growth in the 1855 classification, and this is clearly declared in the sale documents, together with a description of the vineyards, which had remained largely unchanged from the previous century.

Château Malescot-Saint-Exupéry's vineyards lie on five separate parcels totaling 85 acres situated in the two main gravelly zones of Margaux; two of these parcels are directly adjacent to Château Margaux on its north and west sides. These soils, partly due to their position up-river where they drain the Pyrenees, are the most refined of the Médoc. While the layer of gravel typical of the Médocain soils covers a clay subsoil rich in iron oxide and trace elements and low in nitrogen, in Margaux there is an elevated presence of chalk and limestone, lending the wines the greatest elegance and delicacy of any in the Médoc. Plantings as of 1995 stood at 58 acres in vines of an average age of 35 years planted 4,000 stocks to the acre. The proportionate distribution of plantings by variety is fairly typical of Margaux: 50 percent Cabernet Sauvignon, 35 percent Merlot, ten percent Cabernet Franc and five percent Petit Verdot. The vineyard is naturally maintained, and harvest is carried out by hand.  

 

Chateau Malescot St. Exupéry
On 1 June 1955, Mr. Paul Zuger and his son Roger bought the domain and after more than 40 years of continuous effort and attention, the Malescot-Saint-Exupéry escutcheon retrieved its ancient glory and was able to brandish its motto “Semper ad altum,” ever higher. On the 45 hectares of the estate, 23.5 are planted to vines, predominantly Cabernet-Sauvignon. It produces 600 to 700 barrels of a wine which tasters describe as “typically Margaux.” It nevertheless shows a very particular bouquet which changes from raspberry to violets as it develops. The entire production is put into numbered bottles. Today, its splendor recovered, connoisseurs like to come to the château and find the same delicacy and finesse derived from this terroir, vintage after vintage, which is, in good years, irrefutably the best.

After more than 30 years of major efforts and careful attention, the wine of Malescot Saint-Exupéry has come up to its full potential, as summed up in its motto Semper Ad Altum. The estate covers 45 hectares, but only 23.5 are planted with vines, on the finest plots. You can “see the river” from the vines, which is considered a sign of quality in the Médoc. Connoisseurs greatly appreciate the outstanding bouquet and full-bodied fruitiness of this classified great growth.
