Château Sociando-Mallet 2006

A powerful and refined Haut-Médoc red wine

The producer

Overlooking the Gironde estuary for nearly three centuries, Château Sociando-Mallet is one of the most respected estates in the Haut-Médoc appellation. Owned by Sieur Sociando in the 17th century, the Mallet family purchase the estate in the 19th century, thus adding their name. Since 1969, the Gautreau family has been injecting both passion and energy into this iconic estate, located on the left bank of Bordeaux.

The vineyard

At the top of the Baleyron hill, near Saint-Seurin-de-Cadourne, the 79 hectares of vineyards are planted on a terroir which comprises gravel and clay, resting on a clay-limestone subsoil. The vines are on average 30 years old and are managed in the traditional manner.

The vineyard comprises 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc.

The tasting

Colour

Château Sociando-Mallet 2006 has a brilliant, beautiful dark colour with purple nuances.

Nose

The nose gives off fruity (blackberry) and woody (cedar) fragrances.

Palate

Structured and delicious, this wine is seductive due to its supple and dense tannins. Harmoniously combining power and refinement, this fine Haut-Médoc wine offers an exceptional ageing potential.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Tasted blind at Farr Vintners' 2006 tasting, the 2006 Château Sociando Mallet displayed a lifted and sprightly bouquet with black fruit, scorched earth, fresh mint and smoky aromas - quasi-Pauillac in style. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin and a keen line of acidity, fresh in the mouth with a saline tincture towards the composed finish. There is impressive freshness here, not overly complex for sure, but it conveys energy. Drink now and over the next decade. Tasted April 2016.
