The Château Sociando-Mallet 2014 has an outstanding nose: very intense blackberry and raspberry fruit, fine delineation and tension, a real humdinger! The palate is fresh and vibrant with fine tannin, plenty of grainy red berry fruit mixed with cedar and bay leaf, with great conviction on the finish. This is a great Sociando Mallet from Jean Gartreau - expect it to land at the top of that banded score.

"The 2014 Sociando Mallet is terrific. Bold, intense and savory, the 2014 delivers serious intensity and character. There is no shortage of depth or personality here. This is another overachiever from the Haut-Médoc in 2014." 91 points Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media, March 2019
