Product Details

Tasting Notes

Classic blackcurrant aromas and a touch of spice - the flavours are deliciously ripe and soft too, with lovely plum and raspberry characters.

Delicious enough by itself, but if you're after a food match you'll need something equally luxurious, go for roasted red meats particularly rib of beef - also roast duck works brilliantly too.

American wine super-critic Robert Parker loved it, giving it 91+ points.

Drink 2022-2062.

90 Points Robert Parker - The Wine Advocate 20/02/2012

Of the 2009 vintage, The Wine Gang said: This is a good pick, however, from an estate that consistently produces wine of a classed-growth standard despite not being part of the classification: intense, dense and still tightly wound with prominent tannins, but with a core of blackcurrant and pencil-lead that will need a few years to soften up and show its best.

"Tempting offer from Bordeaux's superb 2009 vintage, notably a vibrant Château Sociando Mallet…"
