1983 Sociando-Mallet, Haut-Médoc

SKU #950469 92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Phenomenally good for this estate. Wonderfully rich with cedar, lead pencil and berry character. Has a full body and excellent velvety, concentrated tannins. (JS) Inner quote mark (10/1994)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Bright dark ruby with a bit of evolution at the rim. Neat and pretty and direct on the nose, without the intensity of the 1982 but with attractive precision. Almost a hint of something burnt here on the nose! Very firm and racy with less opulence than the 1982 but still going admirably strong when I compare it with most other 1983s. Dusty tannins and a slight lack of charm but it certainly proves the ageability of Sociando-Mallet. (JR) Inner quote mark (9/2009)

Vinous

Outer quote mark The 1983 Sociando-Mallet was picked from September 28 until October 13. It has a generous bouquet for the vintage, featuring dark red fruit, pomegranate, rooibos, fennel and pressed flowers. It immediately responds to aeration, gaining intensity although never becoming as complex as the 1982. The citric palate is medium-bodied with slightly rustic tannin, pointed and almost tart red fruit and a slightly austere finish that I suspect had more fruité five or 10 years ago. (NM) Inner quote mark (3/2019)
