Reviews of Château Sociando Mallet 1996
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
Château Sociando-Mallet 2009
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.
Brillant ruby red colour, high layer. Good smell of coffee and toffee. A little bit salty but it was very good.
