Chateau Sociando-Mallet 2005

91+ points

Haut-Medoc. 13%

More burly than the Houghton Jack Mann 2007 tasted alongside, with obvious but ripe tannin. Yet this also has a freshness and lightness that cheaper 2005 clarets aren’t showing. This is a classy wine.

Enjoyable now but better in 5 years. Will last 20 years.
