Then in 1827, it was the Compte de Saint-Exupéry's turn to own the property and add his name to it. Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, famous French aviator and writer, was one of his descendants.

The Château Malescot Saint-Exupéry was named Troisième Grand Cru Classé in the famous 1855 classification, and passed into the hands of the Zuger family a century later.

The 28-hectare vineyard is planted on fine clay-limestone and gravel terroirs, and is made up of 50% Merlot, 45% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Petit Verdot. A Second wine is produced, La Dame de Malescot.

Having long since regained its letters of nobility, the Château Malescot Saint-Exupéry offers harmonious, fruity and expressive wines, illustrating the beauty of the Margaux terroir.
