Welcome to Tesco Wine by the case.
We hope you enjoy your visit.
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.

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…"
This is the Grand Vin from the prestigious Château Sociando-Mallet. The winemaker is the charismatic Jean Gautreau, who fell in love with the estate in 1969.
Located in the commune of Saint Seurin de Cadourne in the Haut-Médoc, the estate's vineyards overlook the truly magnificent Gironde estuary.
