Château Sociando-Mallet makes concentrated, deliciously balanced wines that equal many classified growths in quality. It has an excellent reputation among French wine lovers, who appreciate its undeniable finesse. Flavors are full-bodied and complex, with pronounced cassis and raspberry fruit; in the nose, notes of spicy, smoky, noble oak and vanilla mingle with the red fruit. It is much appreciated for its excellent aging quality and typically develops gracefully for 10-25 years after the vintage.

Wine SpectatorAromas of currant and leaves. Medium- to full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a caressing finish. Ends chewy. Best after 2009.

Wine AdvocateSociando Mallet's big, extracted, rich, classic 2004 boasts a deep ruby/purple hue as well as aromas of charcoal, wet stones, cold steel, and abundant black currant and cassis fruit. This medium to full-bodied, structured, powerful wine will benefit from 4-5 years of cellaring. It should last for two decades.

Robert Parker, June 2007
