Ch Sociando Mallet Haut-Medoc 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

"Rich, perfumed, intense and very decadent on the nose. Desperately enticing,<br/>you will really want to dive in! More restrained and reassuringly reserved on<br/>the palate but with a rewarding and very long and seemless finish. Without a<br/>doubt the finest Sociando I have ever tried." <br/>(Simon Staples, Sales and Marketing Director)

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. Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

Ferocious tannins are not unusual for Sociando Mallet, but I was surprised that in a vintage that produced exceptionally tannic, but ripe wines, the Sociando Mallet tannins were atypically austere. Nevertheless, the wine boasts huge concentration alo... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2009 Sociando-Mallet 750ml
