Pungent, expressive nose offers black raspberry, blueberry, bitter chocolate, leather and flowers. Densely packed, juicy and sweet, with excellent inner-mouth energy to the black raspberry and mineral flavors complicated by sexy smoky oak. Lovely ripeness and vinosity here. Finishes with substantial firm tannins that will support a couple decades of graceful evolution in bottle. Like some past outstanding vintages of Sociando-Mallet, this will make a great ringer in future tastings with classified growers from the northern Medoc.

A very classic wine for patient connoisseurs, Sociando Mallet makes no compromises and continues to produce one of the finest wines among non-classified estates in Haut-Medoc. Dense purple to the rim, the opaque purple-colored 2010 offers up notes of graphite, blueberry and black raspberry fruit, a hint of cassis, some licorice and wet rocks. Deep, full-bodied and almost excruciatingly tannic, this full-throttle, balls-to-the-wall style of wine needs at least 8-10 years of cellaring and should keep for three decades or more. 91+ - Robert Parker

Blueish purple. Nose not that intense. But really rich on the front palate. Purple fruits. Not that St-Estèphe but very seductive. (I tasted this blind in a flight of St-Estèphes.) Lots entrenched here. Ambitious. 17/20

Perfumed black and blue fruit dominate the nose with secondary bramble notes of spice and mocha. Rich and evolved on the palate blackberry and boysenberry show silky and lush in the modern styled medium-to-full-bodied wine. Fine-grained well-manicured tannins match the ultra ripe fruit. Great value for the appellation. Enjoy over the next 15 years.
