"Solidly built, showing tobacco and charcoal notes mixed with dark currant and blackberry compote flavors. There's good energy here and the fruit and earth details meld well through the finish. Has a little grip for mid-term cellaring too. Best from 2021 through 2030. 5,594 cases made." -Rated 91, Wine Spectator

"The deep garnet-purple colored 2016 Malescasse reveals expressive black cherries, cassis and mulberries notes with nuances of cigar box, pencil lead and fertile loam. Medium-bodied, the palate is delicately crafted with understated fruit framed by a bit of chewiness and finishes refreshingly restrained." -Rated 87, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

"Well controlled, juicy damson and cassis fruits show good quality. There's a touch of rusticity on the tannins, but lots to enjoy overall. Drinking Window 2022 - 2030." -Rated 90, Decanter

"The 2016 Malescasse is quite powerful and rustic, but also quite pleasing in its own way. Black cherry, chocolate, cloves, spice and licorice add character. Although not especially complex, this expressive, hearty Haut-Médoc Cru Bourgeois has a lot to offer. It should drink well over the next handful of years." -Rated 88, Vinous

"A touched of char-grilled character, next to bitter chocolate and full black fruit. This is big-boned Haut-Médoc that packs a serious punch at the front, but is quite silky and long at the finish. Drink or hold." -Rated 92, James Suckling
