Reviews for 2003 Sociando-Mallet Bordeaux Blend

WS 92
Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, March 2006
Beautiful and intense aromas of blackberry lightly grilled meat and currant. Full-bodied with loads of fruit and big velvety tannins. Blockbuster. Best after 2012.

More grilled on the nose than the 2004 or 2005: superripe black fruits and bitter chocolate. Then liqueur-like verging on confectionery in the mouth, but with surprisingly healthy acids giving shape to the dominant black fruit flavors. At once velvety and quite powerful, with the fine-grained tannins currently conveying a rather soft impression. This is deceptively drinkable right now but should evolve positively in bottle for the next 10 or 15 years.

The tannins have softened considerably, and the wine reveals a youthful dense ruby/purple color. Notes of white flowers, blackberries and black currants are found in this still youthful, medium- to full-bodied, rich wine that is just approaching full maturity. It should provide plenty of pleasure over the next decade. - Robert M. Parker, Jr.
