Chateau Sociando-Mallet 2016 is very dark with violet hues. There are powerful aromas of black fruits, dominated by balsamic perfumes and wild blackberries. The nose is uninhibited and delivers pure and intense fragrances. The palate is powerful, but civilized, with a beautiful weight in the mouth. The combined finesse and power is proof of mastery and precision. A great Sociando-Malet.
