Among the many arguments for abandoning or revising the 1855 Bordeaux classification of the top wine properties in Médoc, one of the most convincing is the quality of Château Sociando-Mallet.
This extra-class Haut-Médoc exactly knew to reflect this great vintage. Sociando-Mallet 2010 is dominated by blueberry notes. Aromatic, dense fruit. Flavors of macerated fruits in liqueur, smoky scent of exotic wood combined with an intense graphite note. On the palate it is direct and precise, intense first impression, which assumes a velvet structure with concentrated but racy tannins. The finish has an excellent length and the interplay is very harmonious. A frist class Sociando-Mallet with aging potential.
Château Sociando-Mallet 2010
Wine Advocate-Parker :
Deep garnet colored, the 2010 Sociando-Mallet charges out of the gate with open-knit, maturing scents of baked blackberries, warm cassis and plum preserves followed by notes of sandalwood, cedar chest and pencil shavings. Medium to full-bodied, the palate has a firm, grippy texture and bold freshness supporting the evolved, slightly drying fruit, finishing a bit chewy.
