    February 8, 2019 - Drank alongside the ‘03 Gloria which was a little more hedonistic. This was little tighter but still a lovely wine to enjoy.

    January 25, 2019 - Drinking wonderfully right now after a 1-1.5 hour decant.

    January 8, 2019 - In an excellent place, and such great value if bought at the time. It is all about cedar and blackcurrant, with a rich nose. The fruit is surprisingly forward on the palate for the estate, but it retains the typical austereness on the palate with the tannin prominent. It is well balanced, but a little one dimensional. However, it has a satisfying depth and finish. It only needs an hour in the decanter, and should keep drinking at this level for at least the next 5 years.

Rockss and Fruit

    (Sociando-Mallet) This was lovely classic Claret. Way too young but pure, ripe, and with good nervous tension due to the excellent acidity. A big mouthful of Cab/Merlot with burly tannins and finesse. A Bordeaux I did not hate. Yay.

    (Chateau Sociando-Mallet Haut-Médoc) Also tasted at dinner; incredibly good quality for the vintage. Very deep colour, aromatic and young, with a claretty nose that reminds me a little of the 1997 in its youth, which was a corker for the vintage. Textured, obvious but very well judged extract, and fine tannins, fresh yet dense and quite serious. Some length too. Very good indeed.
