Tasting Notes from the Curator

Château Sociando-Mallet Haut-Médoc, a creation from the revered Bordeaux, is showcased through its expressive, full-bodied taste. This stunning red wine stars a magnificent blend of flavors, commencing with luscious dark fruits like blackberry and blueberry, intertwined with undertones of dark chocolate and walnuts. It’s a complex palate encounter that progresses indulgently; a tête-à-tête between the undeniable fruitiness of blackberries, the sultry sweetness of cassis, and the sinful allure of dark chocolate. It’s a dance of flavors, swirling around in full-bodied rhythm, accentuated by a rich, layered, velvety mouthfeel. The generous tannins give it a firm but elegant structure, flawlessly blending with the overall richness of the wine. Lastly, hazelnut and spice undertones subtly peak through, adding an intriguing depth and complexity, leaving one with a memorable taste long after the last sip.

Pairings & Suggestions

  • Delight in a ribeye steak, charred to perfection on the grill, with luscious marbling that would be amicably matched with the wine’s weighty black currant and blackberry flavors.
  • Savour the flavorful harmony between juicy, earthy grilled lamb chops and the wine’s dark fruit and spice accents.
  • A tenderloin pork grilled lightly would echo the wine’s layered texture while being beautifully offset by the wine’s undertones of dark chocolate and hazelnut.
  • An aged cheddar cheese, with its sharp, nutty flavors, would be exquisitely complemented by wine’s intense fruity flavors, with the velvety mouthfeel lending a splash of opulence.

    From Humble Beginnings to Haut-Médoc Heights

The remarkable origins of Château Sociando-Mallet Haut-Médoc begin in 1633, with a Basque nobleman, Sièvre Sociando, later passed onto the Mallet family in the 19th century. But the estate truly began to flourish under Jean Gautreau. From the moment Gautreau discovered the potential of these vineyards, he was smitten, purchasing the estate in 1969, dedicating his efforts to revitalize the vineyard from 7 hectares to an expansive 57 hectares. He also revamped the estate’s buildings to improve wine production facilities. But perhaps what sets this estate apart is its vehement dedication to cultivate exceptional Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Cabernet Franc grape varieties. All of their wines are bottled unfined and unfiltered to preserve their natural attributes. Even today, the Château Sociando-Mallet estate continues to soar high, living up to Gautreau’s initial vision, imbibing a sense of awe and respect for its prestigious lineage in every pour.
