Performing far better from bottle than it did from cask, the full-bodied offers abundant notes of plums, blueberries and black raspberries interwoven with hints of white flowers, damp earth and background oak.
About The Winery
Jean Gautreau discovered Sociando-Mallet in the village of Saint-Seurin-de-Cadourne in 1969 when looking for a wine estate to buy on behalf of a Belgian client. It was love at first sight, despite the fact that the property was in a sorry state. However, the terroir was excellent and the domain afforded a magnificent view overlooking the Gironde Estuary. Jean Gautreau immediately decided to acquire it for himself for 250,000 French francs.
