Tasted May 2009. A superb bottle, and an incredibly good 1997, better than almost all famed Grands crus classés from the Médoc and Pessac-Léognan from this vintage! A dense colour and a gorgeous bouquet of ripe fruit and soft oak, a classic taste with remarkable concentration (considering the poor vintage), excellent purity and freshness and marvelous elegance. Long finish, still slightly oaky and dry, but this is all the better as it conveys grip and backbone. Tasted blind, this is rather like a 1996 or 1998. A truly great success for the vintage -- this is what Sociando-Mallet is all about. Drink now through 2014.
