Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot
Chateau Sociando-Mallet, Haut-Medoc, Bordeaux, France, 375ml
Château Sociando Mallet displayed a lifted and sprightly bouquet with black fruit, scorched earth, fresh mint and smoky aromas – quasi-Pauillac in style. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin and a keen line of acidity, fresh in the mouth with a saline tincture towards the composed finish. There is impressive freshness here, not overly complex for sure, but it conveys energy.
