Dark with almost an inky color, the nose is has the leafy greenness I associate with Merlot. Fleshy but not tannic this is a soft easy wine. notes of spice and cocoa in the mouth. Nice, soft exit with some lingering flavors of spice.

medium in body, nose, and acidity. a still-youthful ruby. graphite, plum skin, grapeseed on the nose. pretty lightweight and silky tannins for such a wine. was expecting more; perhaps it's closed?

Bright, Medium Intensity Color. Raisin, Strawberry, Jammy, Light Cedar, Tobacco and Herbal/Earth on the Nose. Plum and Fruit Palate but with a god core of acid. Dry, Medium Body Wine, Medium Acidity with a Medium length finish --Easy to Drink on its own but best paired with a food with some heft.

An excellent wine. Gorgeous bouquet of wild flowers and some graphite. Very dark and dense in color. On the palate, very refined – ripe dark berries, full bodied, complex and heavy weight with a 30-second long finish. Needed some time for the nose to open up (an hour).

The 2011 may turn out to be even better than the 2009 Sociando Maillet. Its opaque purple color is not unusual for a young Sociando Maillet but the creme de cassis graphite and floral characteristics impressively saturate the olfactory senses. Medi...

The 2011 may turn out to be even better than the 2009 Sociando Maillet. Its opaque purple color is not unusual for a young Sociando Maillet but the creme de cassis graphite and floral characteristics impressively saturate the olfactory senses. Medium to full-bodied with excellent purity texture and length as well as remarkably sweet tannins this wine should drink nicely for 10-15 years. Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

2010: The classic 2010 displays everything one expects from this over-achieving Haut-Medoc. A dense purple color is followed by aromas of blueberries, black currants, graphite and crushed rocks, a layered, full-bodied mouthfeel, stunning concentratio... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate.
