L'Autre de Sociando-Mallet Bordeaux Red Bordeaux Blend 2008

Amazing aromas. Smells and tastes like herbs. Never had anything quite like this. Was open for 3-4 hours before trying. Smell and taste evolved as it opened. Very smooth. It tasted like summer to me. All the fennel and mint flavors had the essence of the season — 5 years ago

Cheval Quancard

LaFleur Mallet Sauternes Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2011

Yes yes yes. I know I’m like a kid with a cup of hit chocolate, but I just love sweet wines. Hints of citrus. But if acid balances the sweetness really well. Paired best with bold blue cheese than more gentle flavors. — 5 years ago

THIS IS THE CALIFORNIA VERSION OF 1996 SOCIANDO MALLET. I bet that most people couldn't tell the difference blind. — 5 years ago

THE BEST WAY TO SPREAD CHRISTMAS CHEER IS TO SING LOUD FOR ALL TO HEAR (unrelated but that's what I think when I see all caps). So you raise a good question. If it's as similar to SM, does it really represent value? I'll put some bottles to the test with you guys. SCIENCE!

Don't think this is a value play. SM is half the price if not less

At current release pricing it's more than half the price. Not sure it's a completely fair comparison as I haven't had a young Forman but I'm inclined to agree with you.

Domaine des Roches Neuves (Thierry Germain)

L'Insolite Saumur Chenin Blanc 2015

At first I thought the wine was served too cold because the nose was almost non-existent. After 20 mins scents of apple skin stared to show up. Once I tasted the wine I realized the acid was acting like a Whac -A-Mole mallet. Every time the fruit tried to pop up it was whacked. The ingredients needed to be a solid wine is there it just needs time to unfold. — 5 years ago

Really nice micro production cuvée from Sociando Mallet. The best 1995 I've had from Bordeaux, and it's not close. — 5 years ago
