Antonio Galloni writes:  The 2020 Malescasse is a gorgeous, wonderfully expressive Haut-Médoc Cru Bourgeois. Cabernet Sauvignon aromatics open first, with plenty of floral and savory accents that lift from the glass. Pliant and caressing on the palate, with mid-weight structure, the 2020 is an absolute delight to taste. This is elegance personified.  Drinking 2025 - 2035.   - Vinous 92

Jeb Dunnuck writes:  Coming from the northern part of the Médoc and 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Merlot, raised in 40% new barrels, the 2020 Château Malescasse offers a terrific bouquet of cassis, spicy oak, chocolate, and leafy herbs. This carries to a medium-bodied Haut- Médoc with ripe tannins, solid mid-palate depth, and a great finish.  Drinking 2025 - 2035.  - Jeb Dunnuck 91

Zekun Shuai writes:  Solid cherries, gravel and some blue fruit with orange zest and iron. A sleek, medium- to full-bodied Haut-Medoc laden with crumbled, fine tannins. Well-balanced and structured. Drink or hold.  - James Suckling 92

Alistair Cooper MW writes:  Spicy cedar and cigar box with an earthy gravelly note on the nose – textbook Médoc. Rich and creamy oak intertwine with the cigar notes on the palate, quite sweet as well as savoury with a slightly charred smoky note on the finish. Lots to enjoy here.  Drinking 2024 - 2034.  - Jancis Robinson 16

William Kelley writes:  From holdings on the edge of the plateau of Grands Poujeaux, the 2020 Malescasse is a Merlot-driven bottling that offers up aromas of dark berries, orange zest, violets and pencil shavings, followed by a medium to full-bodied, velvety and seamless palate that's fleshy and gourmand.  Drinking 2023 - 2035.  - Robert Parker Wine Advocate 90

Neal Martin writes:  The 2020 Malescasse is very endearing on the nose, well-defined with lifted blackberry and bilberry fruit, a subtle estuarine scent filtering through with time. The palate is medium-bodied with fine delineation, nicely balanced and pure with lightly spiced, graphite-tinged black fruit towards the finish. This is a well-crafted Haut-Médoc and comes highly recommended. Bravo.  - Vinous 92

Jancis Robinson writes:  Dark purplish crimson. Lively, well-integrated nose. Round, supple texture without much obvious tannin or oak influence – but this is just the sort of early-maturing red bordeaux that would be great for an airline. Juicy and well balanced even if not a serious player.  Drinking 2023 - 2030.  - Jancis Robinson 16
