Wine Region: Haut-Medoc, Bordeaux, France
Type: Red Wine
Grape: Cabernet Sauvignon
Chateau Sociando-Mallet produces full-bodied wines with a deep, dark colour. 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.
Chateau Sociando-Mallet has always been a wine with great ageing potential. A wine to be enjoyed even after 30 years in great vintages
About The Winery
Sociando-Mallet has throned on the Butte de Baleyron, one of the finest gravelly terroirs in the Medoc, since the 17th century. Situated in the commune of Saint-Seurin-de-Cadourne, north of Pauillac, the vineyard overlooks the Gironde estuary on a bend in the river.
Sociando-Mallet's terroir consists of Gunz gravel over a deep layer of clay-limestone soil. This terroir perfectly regulates water supply and enables Cabernet Sauvignon to ripen extremely well and Merlot to acquire depth and complexity. This terroir is Sociando's soul. It provides the wine with complex structure, freshness, and elegance.
