Sociando-Mallet is clearly one of the finest, if not the finest, estate in Haut-Medoc. Planted to 54% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Merlot, 1% Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, the vineyard is superbly situated overlooking the Gironde River. The style of the wine is one of inky black color, loads of concentration and plenty of tannin. 'Sociando-Mallet is the poster child for what cru bourgeois estates can achieve. This is a wine that is consistently of classified-growth quality and also one of the longest lived wines made in the Medoc.' Parker

Wine AdvocateA very classic wine for patient connoisseurs, Sociando Mallet makes no compromises and continues to produce one of the finest wines among non-classified estates in Haut-Medoc. Dense purple to the rim, the opaque purple-colored 2010 offers up notes of graphite, blueberry and black raspberry fruit, a hint of cassis, some licorice and wet rocks. Deep, full-bodied and almost excruciatingly tannic, this full-throttle, balls-to-the-wall style of wine needs at least 8-10 years of cellaring and should keep for three decades or more.

Robert Parker, February 2013
