Château Malescasse has been owned by the French telecom company, Alcatel Alsthom, since 1992. It has invested heavily in a new winery and cellars and Malescasse is now one of the best Cru Bourgeois clarets on the market. It is located in the Haut-Médoc, just outside the town of Lamarque and consists of 37 hectares of vineyards.
The wine is a blend of 46% Cabernet Sauvignon, 44% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc. The grapes are fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel vats and the wine is then matured in oak barriques (25% new) for 14 months. These are medium-bodied, well-structured, fruit-driven clarets that show at their best with around 5 years of bottle age.
