Description The Haut-Médoc is home to dozens of sought-after crus classés but, for “some of the best value Bordeaux”, says the Financial Times, you should consider the fabulous quality offered by the crus bourgeois estates. And Malescasse is “the best cru bourgeois of the last 20 years” according to Clive Coates MW. Its vineyards occupy a prime site in the Haut-Médoc, surrounded by some of Bordeaux’s most prestigious estates. Since 1824 Malescasse has thrived under numerous patrons, including the highly regarded Tesseron family of Pontet Canet. In 2003 it was upgraded to cru bourgeois superior, confirming its position as one of the finest. The 2002 has a mellow autumnal character ideally suited to feathered game, casseroles or a wild mushroom risotto.
