Château Sociando-Mallet 2016 - HAUT-MÉDOC




Tasted by Jane Anson(at Bordeaux, 04 Jan 2021)Part of Anson: The brilliance of 1996 Pauillac wines.
Score: 93/100

This is one of the most must-try wines in this lineup because it absolutely stands up next to these Pauillac classified properties, and delivers on so much that is enjoyable about the 1996 vintage. Crème de cassis, chocolate and rich black fruits with finely-bonded open tannins. At its plateau, with tertiary notes of undergrowth and tobacco leaf, but this has another decade ahead of it easily, and is a signature Médoc Cabernet.

Over het wijnhuis Château Sociando-Mallet is een naam om te onthouden. Het is gevestigd in Saint-Seurin-de-Cadourne, een mini-dorpje in het noorden van de Haut-Médoc op nog geen vijf kilometer afstand van Château Calon-Ségur, een Grand Cru Classé in het beroemde Saint-Estèphe. Naar verluidt worden de beste wijnen van de Médoc geproduceerd door wijnstokken met uitzicht over de Gironde. “Château Sociando-Mallet has the best view of the Gironde of any Médoc château I have visited”, aldus Jancis Robinson.

"The 2016 Sociando-Mallet has a refulgent purple/black color. It has a very intense and rich, you might say "ambitious" bouquet with layers of small black cherries, blueberry and a touch of sloes, less tertiary than previous vintages and certainly more opulent. The palate is medium-bodied with juicy ripe tannin that almost disguise the firm structure underneath. I admire the completeness of this Sociando-Mallet, the neatly embroidered new oak and the freshness on the finish. The 2015 Sociando-Mallet did not fire on all cylinders last year, but this 2016 is totally convincing. It comes highly recommended as one of the best wines produced at this estate in the northern Médoc. This is an outstanding wine from Mon. Gartreau." - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

"Dark-berry and currant aromas with hints of spice. Medium body, firm and chewy tannins and a fresh and clean finish. Shows focus and seriousness for the appellation, as is usual from this producer. Better after 2022." - James Suckling

"Tasted blind. Both fresh and intense and burly-fruited. Sweet start and good follow-through. Acid and tannin there but not too aggressive." - Jancis Robinson

"The 2016 Sociando Mallet is a wine of real depth and power. My feeling is that the 2016 will need at least a few years to be at its very best. Even so, the wine's complexity and overall pedigree are impossible to miss. Plum, lavender, chocolate and spice add striking layers of nuance. This is a very strong showing from Sociando Mallet." - Vinous

Decanter: 92/100

Inky black in colour, with a beautiful graphite and black fruit nose. This is undoubtedly a great Sociando this year, with precise yet juicy graphite and black fruits on the palate, from a fairly even blend of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon with a touch of Cabernet Franc too.
