Ch Sociando Mallet 2022

Vinous – Neil Martin – 91-93/100
The 2022 Sociando-Mallet was picked 7-23 September at just 22hL/ha. This
is very concentrated and quite opulent on the nose, bit of a bravura
bouquet, layers of black cherry, Christmas cake and light undergrowth
scents. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins. Quite fresh, grippy
in the mouth, my only quibble is that it feels a tad abrupt on the finish.
Barrel maturation should address that.
Robert Parker The Wine Advocate – 92-94/100
Aromas of dark berries and plums mingled with hints of mint, violets and licorice introduce the 2022 Sociando-Mallet, a medium to full-bodied, supple and lively wine that’s deep, fleshy and seamless, with powdery tannins that assert themselves with promising youthful grip on the finish. It’s a blend of 63% Merlot, 35% Cabernet Sauvignon and 2% Cabernet Franc. Readers who remember how this estate acquitted itself in years such as 2003 and 1990 will not be surprised by its quality in 2022.
