This is definitely a Giant Schnauzer wine. Dark ripe fruits, like purple plums or olallieberries. Smooth, like a newly discovered berry bush refreshed after a spring rainfall. Bold, yet humbled.

In a really pretty spot right now. Secondary aromas of cedar, dried earth, and baked black currants. People love collecting this wine - I get it now. Solid and dependable Medoc example

Clear deep garnet in colour. Medium intensity with herbaceous tobacco leaf notes and oak spice. Still developing. Dry palate with black currant and brambly notes, medium bodied. Left.bank Cabernet dominant blend with good persistence and length. Could drink now or age further.

Early days. Tasty, but oak still frontal and fruit is fairly primary.

Rather more gentle and feminine than the Potensac.

One of the best you can get in Haut Médoc. Fantastic with a hint of black cherry taste on the finish.

I've been a fan of Sociando Mallet since 1987's one. This 2008 is now enjoyable enough, but probably would start to reach its fullest potential 5 years later. Will open 2008 vintage in 2021 and in 2026.
