Château Sociando-Mallet

Haut-Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend 2011

Sociando normally doesn’t disappoint, and it didn’t today but I must admit it didn’t meet expectations neither. A certain bitterness that bothered me, kind of unripe taste that shouldn’t be there taking the age into account — 9 days ago

Bodegas Emilio Moro

Malleolus Ribera del Duero Tempranillo 2015

Winery is family-run & has links with the wine world going back 3 generations. Founded by Emilio Moro who was born in Pesquera de Duero, a prominent Spanish wine area. Made from grapes of old vineyards, between 25 and 75 years old, from the Camino Viejo estate. Malleolus is a Latin word meaning “small hammer or mallet” used in planting, and “majuelo” Spanish for “young vine” a traditional way of referring to a vineyard in Pesquera del Duero. Deep red subtle fruit aromas with espresso and smoky notes. Blackberry & cherry with vanilla spice on full lush tannins needing more time. Well balanced, complex, lingering with earthy finish. — 2 years ago

@Arden Barnett I picked up a few bottles to be holed away for another decade but it sounds like it might be fun to try one young?

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. — 2 years ago

La Demoiselle de Sociando-Mallet Jean Gautreau Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot 2008

Took a chance on this one at the local grocery store as it was on clearance. But it’s absolutely stunning. Now I need to go back and buy every last bottle, if there’s any left. A wonderfully blended Bordeaux 50% cab 50% merlot. For the price and taste, I’m in love 😍 — a month ago

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 — 2 years ago

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. — 3 years ago
