Winemaker Notes

The wines of Sociando-Mallet are characterized by a very deep and dark color, complex aromas of little red fruits and a well-integrated find oaky finish. The wine is full-bodied, straight and elegant, with a lot of freshness and depth. The wines are also, by tradition, long-keeping wines.

Critical Acclaim

JS 94
James Suckling

Lots of currants, berries and chocolate on the nose and palate. Full and chewy. Solid tannin structure.

V 91
Vinous / Antonio Galloni

Deep ruby. Blackcurrant, licorice, underbrush and smoky oak on the inviting nose, with hints of tobacco and minerals. Dense and chewy in the mouth, with brooding, ripe flavors of blackberry, dark plum and smoky, chocolatey oak given lift by firm acidity. Finishes with subtle length but its assertive tannins will require at least several years of patience once this wine is released. I'm a big fan of this overachieving property, which for my money usually produces one of the top five or six values in all of Bordeaux That said, I wonder if this chunky wine has the concentration to surpass top recent releases.
Barrel Sample: 89-91

RP 90
The Wine Advocate

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.

Chateau Sociando-Mallet
Château Sociando-Mallet has been building its reputation since 1970, when Jean Gautreau raised standards to near Cru Classé quality. The quality of the wine continued to improve throughout the 1990s, when between 80 and 100 percent new oak became the norm.
