Selected lots of Sociando-Mallet, 100% cabernet sauvignon in 100% new oak - in other words a pretty good candidate to be shut down hard from the 2005 vintage, and sure enough it's got Sociando's hallmark austerity in spades, but there is no doubt this is a serious bottle of wine. It is a throwback Bordeaux, capable of giving you a petite madeleine moment for the kind of claret they don't really make much anymore. It's red-fruited with a tinge of something almost walnutty, for now the material is fairly tense without a whole lot of inner flesh (100% cabernet!) - looking forward to what develops here but will have to leave it in a deep, dark corner of the cellar. Will try the 1995 soon... should be interesting.
