SOCIANDO-MALLET: THE GREATEST UNCLASSIFIED BORDEAUX ESTATE

Sociando-Mallet has long been a favorite of Bordeaux insiders, and it's easy to understand why. Occupying the same terrace of Gunzian gravel that one finds at estates such as Montrose, Léoville-Las Cases and Latour, and planted at a high density of 8,333 vines per hectare, it's located just to the north of Saint-Estèphe, right on the banks of the Gironde. That location, delivering temperatures some two to three degrees Celsius cooler than Margaux to the south, combined with clay subsoils, means that this estate invariably delivers especially fine performances in warm, dry vintages (such as 2009). And although it wasn't planted in 1855, and thus isn't a classified growth, Sociando-Mallet's performance in blind tastings tells its own story. The 2009 is an exceptional example of that story, pitching a powerful expression of the estate’s super-cuvee “Jean Gautreau”. The Jean Gautreau is Sociando Mallet’s classic style but imagine the jump from Prime steak to Akaushi. This is richer, more textural, and more intense, and a perfect example of why this wine is an insider secret. - Brandon Kerne, MS
