2000 Château Sociando-Mallet, Cru Bourgeois, Haut Medoc, Bordeaux

£89.75 inc. VAT

Wines from the outstanding 2000 Bordeaux vintage are becoming harder to find and soaring in price. Sociando-Mallet is always and overperformer and truly excels in the first vintage of this millennium. It’s now hitting its sweet spot.

“This is a beautiful wine and certainly one of the great sleepers of the vintage. I originally predicted that this wine would be at full maturity between 2007 and 2028, but I would push that back by a good 4-5 years. Still inky/purple, with notes of acacia flowers intermixed with wet rocks, black currants, and blueberries, the wine is full-bodied, displays no real evidence of any oak, and offers up terrific concentration, texture, and length. For those who bought this beauty at $30-35 when it was available, this was a terrific buy, and it should continue to evolve for 20+ years.” Robert Parker, Wine Advocate (189), June 2010
