Chateau Sociando-Mallet is located in the commune of Saint-Sevrin-de-Cadourne, in the north of Pauillac. Its 85 hectares of vineyard are very well situated with an amazing view on the Gironde estuary. The estate dates back to the 17th century when it belonged to the Sossiando family who were of Basque origin. The property was purchased by Jean Lamothe. His daughter then inherited it and in 1831. In 1969, after the succession of several owners, Jean Gautron took over the estate which had become extremely neglected, despite its excellent location. His hard-work and motivation are at the origin of the high reputation and quality of the Chateau Sociando-Mallet that we know today.

Its inky/blue/purple colour is accompanied by a spectacular bouquet of lead pencil shavings, ink, blackberries, cedar, and earth. Full-bodied, with terrific texture, fabulous concentration, and moderately high tannin, this massive, atypical 2001 must be tasted to be believed. A brilliant achievement!

Great with roasted meats and vegetables, creamy dishes.

Perfect drinking now.
