Château Sociando-Mallet produces full-bodied wines with a deep, dark color. Their complex bouquet is usually dominated by black fruit aromas with a touch of minerality and well-integrated, elegant oak. Often somewhat "virile" when young, the wines gain in balance and complexity with age. They are fresh, straightforward, and have a wonderful length. Château Sociando-Mallet has always been a wine with great ageing potential. A wine to be enjoyed even after 30 years in great vintages.
Winemaker's Notes: The 2011 offers a nose of ripe black fruit, closed and deep and beautiful mature grapes. Nice velvety mouth feel with density and finesse, beautiful structure and enveloping tannin. Superb.
