Chateau Sociando Mallet Haut Medoc 2016

Size Pack
750 ml
Case of 12


The 2016 Chateau Sociando-Mallet is a beautiful, complete wine that shows the classic style of this vintage beautifully. Deep ruby/purple-colored, with terrific notes of blackcurrants, black cherries, dried earth, and lead pencil shavings, it hits the palate with medium to full-bodied richness, a layered, seamless texture, and a great finish. It has plenty of tannins, yet they're polished and nicely integrated into the wine. This brilliant Haut-Medoc is approachable today yet will be even better with 2-4 years of bottle age and keep for 15+ years. -Jeb Dunnuck, Feb 2019

The 2016 Sociando Mallet is a wine of real depth and power. My feeling is that the 2016 will need at least a few years to be at its very best. Even so, the wine's complexity and overall pedigree are impossible to miss. Plum, lavender, chocolate and spice add striking layers of nuance. This is a very strong showing from Sociando Mallet. -Antonio Galloni, Jan 2019
