    The Sociando-Mallet 2009 is a racy Haut-Medoc. The color is very dark and deep purple. The nose of this great Haut-Medoc is complex, offering small black fruit mixed with new oak notes linked to the aging, but perfectly integrated. On the palate, the wine has a superb, creamy texture with balanced and silky tannins, all of an elegant density. The palate then reveals black fruit (blackberry, blueberry, blackcurrant) and a touch of minerality. The finish is long and persistent. Sun-drenched ripeness and voluptuous with good aging potential.

    Wine Advocate-Parker :
    This uncompromising property has turned out a backward, forbiddingly tannic wine that, even in this very opulent and flamboyant vintage, will need a minimum of 10-15 years of cellaring yet keep for 40 or more years. Opaque black/purple, with notes of crushed rock, white flowers, graphite, blueberry and cassis, the wine is tight and needs to be coaxed from the glass. It is medium to full-bodied, with an excruciatingly tough-textured finish. Everything is here, and the wine is set for a long life, but it is not the least bit charming and certainly won't be for at least another decade.
