The Story

The property is located 10km north of Pauillac in the Haut-Medoc and has since grown to 85 hectares. With overall plantings of 48% Cabernet Sauvignon, 47% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc and an average vine age of over 30 years, Sociando-Mallet has gained a reputation as one of the finest Haut-Medoc wines outside of the 1855 Bordeaux classification. 100% hand-harvested, the grapes are fermented using natural yeasts and, post-fermentation, are aged for over 12 months in all new French oak barrels.

With vines growing on gravel slopes lying over a clay sub-soil, Sociando-Mallet is characterised by great freshness, persistence and structure.

Written Notes

Dark purple red with violet hue and almost black centre. Elegant nose with ripe fruit, berries and hints of berry jam, discreet spicyness and hints of toasted flavours in the background. On the palate well structured and balanced with rather good weight and length.
