Marks and reviews
Overlooking the Gironde estuary for nearly three centuries, Château Sociando-Mallet is one of the most respected properties in the Haut-Médoc. Owned by Sieur Sociando in the 17th century, the Mallet family added their name to the estate after acquiring it in the 19th century. Since 1969, the Gautreau family has been breathing passion and energy into this emblematic property on the Left Bank of Bordeaux.
Château Sociando-Mallet 2022 is an Haut-Médoc wine produced from a 77-hectare vineyard located at the top of the Baleyron hill, in the commune of Saint-Seurin-de-Cadourne. The vines are 35 years old on average and are planted on a terroir of gravel and clay on a clay-limestone subsoil.

Vatting time of 25 days. Malolactic fermentation in vats. The wine was aged for 12 months in barrels, 85% of which were new.
