Sociando Mallet dates back to 1633 and is named from the oldest owner, a "sieur Sociando" having a 'noble vineyard in Saint-Seurin-de-Cadourne. It is around 1850 that the winery took its final name thanks to the new owner and widow Mrs. Mallet.
Since 1989 Jean Gautreau has managed to make Sociando Mallet one of the greatest Haut Médoc.

It is qualified as a "serious wine" by the English magazine Decanter. Do not miss this wine: it is not a "cru bourgeois" but could easily be considered as a Classified Growth!
A wine to age to discover a fantastic wine.Drink or keep: 2015 - 2025Delicious with: Roasted beef

A beautiful colour. Characteristic nuts notes.Licorice flavour.
I had it with fish, but I didn't like the fish, and therefore the wine didn't taste right.
The first time I drank it with people from Château Sociando Mallet.

I would suggest that you serve it with a good potatoes stew. With my friends we always order Château Sociando Mallet.
Brillant ruby red colour, high layer. Good smell of coffee and toffee. A little bit salty but it was very good.
