1996 Château Sociando-Mallet

Community Tasting Note


87 Points

Thursday, November 7, 2013 - This bottle was very much alive but woody, peppery, dominated by green notes, and fruit shy. Medium bodied, does frankly not provide a lot of pleasure. Was this just a disappointing bottle, or is this wine going through a protracted awkward phase or is it just not what it is cracked up to be? Judgement reserved. Last bottle out of case one, two more to go.
