    (Chateau Sociando-Mallet Haut-Médoc) A very dark wine, with a very expressive nose, full of pure dark fruits with a predominant cassis character, very nicely defined, with notes of toasty oak, yet to integrate, in the background. Lovely. Pure, well defined, elegance too though. Beautifully balanced, well delineated structure, very nicely textured. Just perfectly composed. What wonderful finesse. Even better than I recall from my tasting in April 2005.

    (Chateau Sociando-Mallet Haut-Médoc) CS 55%, M 40%, CF 5%. Dark, moderately intense wine, with a blue-purple rim. Attractive presence of dark fruits on the nose, with good depth and interest. Very soft and textured on the palate, and nicely ripe. Clearly delineated fruit, very well proportioned wine. Firm structure, balanced, and a grippy finish. This is very good wine, with more potential than you might expect.
