1995 Sociando-Mallet, Haut-Médoc

SKU #110367 91 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 1995 Sociando-Mallet is a blend of 53% Cabernet Sauvignon, 42% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc picked between September 14 and 26. It has a fragrant bouquet of thyme, sage, touches of black fruit, briar and black truffle, subtle at first but gaining intensity with aeration. The medium-bodied palate displays fine definition, crisp focus and good depth, and it seems to gain cohesion toward the finish. There is a sense of conservatism about this Sociando, and it does taper in a little, but I like the length here, and it continues to give a lot of pleasure. Tasted at the vertical tasting at Sociando-Mallet. Drink through 2027. (NM) Inner quote mark (3/2019)

91 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark A real fruit-bomb, with expressive aromas of currants, blackberries and vanilla. Full-bodied and chunky, with masses of fruit and well-knit tannins. (JS) Inner quote mark (1/1998)

88-91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Very typical Medoc (i.e., cabernet sauvignon) aromas of blackcurrant and herbs, plus some vanillin oak. Firm and fresh on the palate; dense yet fine for this wine (from the higher Cabernet percentage?). Tannins are already nicely integrated. Lots of underlying fat. Compares favorably to many top names of the northern Médoc, should be a terrific value. (ST) Inner quote mark (5/1996)

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark This accessible, yet tannic example of Sociando-Mallet possesses a deep ruby/purple color, and excellent aromatics consisting of jammy black cherries, blackberries, and cassis, as well as subtle notes of minerals, earth, and new oak. This is a deep, long, muscular, tannic wine that is structurally similar to the 1996. Patience will be required from purchasers of this high class wine. (RP) Inner quote mark (2/1998)
