2009 Chateau Sociando-Mallet - Haut-Medoc
Chateau Sociando-Mallet Description
The wines of Sociando Mallet are characterized by a very deep and dark color, complex aromas of little red fruits and a well-integrated fine oaky touch. They are by tradition long-keeping wines. The wines are full-bodied, straight and elegant, with a lot of freshness and depth.
Wine Spectator: 88 Points
"Love the nose of currant and mineral, with hints of mint. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and a medium finish. Tannic. Maybe too much. But I think it's going to come out excellent." -- James Suckling
Wine Advocate: 90 Points
"This uncompromising property has turned out a backward, forbiddingly tannic wine that, even in this very opulent and flamboyant vintage, will need a minimum of 10-15 years of cellaring yet keep for 40 or more years. Opaque black/purple, with notes of crushed rock, white flowers, graphite, blueberry and cassis, the wine is tight and needs to be coaxed from the glass. It is medium to full-bodied, with an excruciatingly tough-textured finish. Everything is here, and the wine is set for a long life, but it is not the least bit charming and certainly won't be for at least another decade."
