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…"

Anthony Rose - The Independent Magazine 22/06/2013

Of the 2009 vintage, Victoria Moore said: "Tesco is fielding a terrific array of wines from great value £5 cheapies to delicious northern Medoc clarets like this, hidden online but at the best price I could find in the UK. I preferred the lusher "drink me now" ripeness of the 2009 to the tighter 2010. The blend is majority Cabernet Sauvignon plus merlot and dabs of cab franc and petit verdot. Gorgeous, frankly."

Victoria Moore - Weekend, Daily Telegraph 11/05/2015



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.
