Haut Espoir

Château Sociando-Mallet

Haut-Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend 1990

This was phenomenal. It’s incredible how youthful and powerful a 29-year old wine can be. Wonderful spicy nose, not a hint of age, beautiful color, great complexity, acidity, and length. This was a real pleasure and very memorable experience. — 6 days ago

One of the best value Left-Bank Bordeaux’s out there. You just have to lay down for 10–15 years. It’s not a sexy Chateau but, they do really good work...smartly priced.

Steak wine tonight with friends.

Notes later if I can.

@David T Holding on to a couple of 2015's...good to get a good estimate of wait time! Thanks!

If you are storing them in a climate controlled environment, 10-20 years from birth depending on how you enjoy them. If not, 5-8 years. They just don’t round out as beautifully or are as elegant, integrated and floral without that kind of storage & time. IMHO. Some people drink there wines young regularly and that’s what becomes their palate or wheelhouse. I’ve fell in love with well softened, elegant, integrated with more floral components. Any well made producers of Cabernet from Napa would recommend minimum of 8-10 years in bottle. Well made Bordeaux producers would say 10-50 years depending on the producer, specific region & vintage. Hope this helps. Cheers! 🍷
