2017 Chateau Malescasse Haut-Medoc

Regular price $27.98

91 Wine Enthusiast - Elegant, ripe and balanced, this blend has almost equal proportions of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. That gives a structured wine from the Cru Bourgeois estate, juicy with Cabernet freshness and with potential for future aging.

Located on Bordeaux’s Left Bank, between the Margaux and Saint-Julien appellations, in the Haut-Médoc AOC, Château Malescasse was built in 1824. Head of Lafont-Rochet in Saint-Estèphe and Pontet-Canet in Pauillac, Guy Tesseron bought Château Malescasse in 1970.

Guy Tesseron undertook a major restoration of the vines and the cellars, restoring Château Malescasse to the glory and prestige it deserved. By 1992, Château Malescasse had grown to 40 hectares of vines. After being bought by the Alcatel-Alsthom group, Château Malescasse became the property of Philippe Austry. Seeing Château Malescasse’s potential, Philippe Austry undertook major renovation work. Nothing was left to chance, from the restructuring of the vineyards to the winery and the superb charter house. Château Malescasse is now one of the jewels in the crown of the Haut-Médoc.

With 40 hectares of vines in a single block, Château Malescasse enjoys an exceptional terroir consisting of groups of gravel dating from the Quaternary period, made up of sand, gravel and clay. These poor, well-drained soils encourage the ideal ripening of the grape varieties.

Complex, powerful, elegant and with great ageing potential, the wines of Château Malescasse are the very epitome of the Haut-Médoc crus.

Shipping Policy

Open tab
  • Unless your delivery address is on the West Coast, we strongly discourage you from selecting “Ground Service” as your shipping method. During the winter and summer months, weather conditions (temperature) and longer delivery times can often result in the spoilage of your order. It doesn’t make sense to invest in fine wines and then take the chance of ruining them due environmental factors during transit (faster and safer delivery generally isn’t much more expensive). We don’t make an additional profit on accelerated delivery, but we frequently recommend faster shipping options to our customers outside the West Coast.
  • You must be 21 years of age to order or receive alcoholic beverages.  Any shipments containing alcoholic beverages are sent with an “Adult Signature Required” sticker, and the common carrier that delivers our merchandise is required to ask and check for identification upon delivery. This means that an adult will have to be present at the time of delivery.  Please consider shipping to an office address.
  • During periods of extreme weather, we attempt to ship wines at the beginning of each week in order to get shipments to you before the weekend. This is because we have no control over the temperature conditions at our freight carriers’ warehouses. The result may be that your shipment doesn’t go out the day that you place an order.
  • We ship by Fedex or Fedex Ground. Our prices include packaging materials. Insurance may be available for an additional charge.
  • Vintage Wine Merchants, Inc. will arrange for shipment on behalf of the buyer, to an address specified by the buyer, provided that Vintage Wine Merchants, Inc. in its sole judgment believes that such shipment will not subject Vintage Wine Merchants, Inc. to the risk of any sort of legal action or other harm. If a buyer lives in a state where the direct shipment of wine by Vintage Wine Merchants, Inc. violates the law, we suggest that the buyer provide an alternative address in another state or have their wine shipped to a third-party storage facility in a direct shipping-friendly state.
  • Various states impose limitations on the quantity of alcoholic beverages that may be purchased and brought into their jurisdiction by a purchaser from another state without requiring the purchaser, a seller or shipper to possess certain licenses or permits. Vintage Wine Merchants, Inc. does not, as a condition of sale, assume any obligation nor bear any responsibility whatsoever for applying or obtaining any permits or licenses. Therefore, we recommend that you investigate the possibility of such limitations, and determine the manner in which alcoholic beverages shall be brought into your state from California, so as to comply with all of your state’s requirements.
  • Wine shipping rules in the United States are controlled by the state you live in. We do not ship wine to the following states at this time:
    • Alabama
