Sociando-Mallet thrones on the Butte de Baleyron, one of the finest gravelly terroirs in the Médoc, since the 17th century. Sociando-Mallet's terroir consists of Günz gravel over a deep layer of clay-limestone soil. This terroir perfectly regulates water supply and enables Cabernet Sauvignon to ripen extremely well and Merlot to acquire depth and complexity. This terroir is Sociando's soul. It provides the wine with complex structure, freshness, and elegance.
Primarily located east of the village of Saint-Seurin, the property stretches over a total of 120 hectares, of which 83 are under vine, consisting of 42% Cabernet sauvignon, 54% Merlot, and 4% Cabernet franc

Winemaker Notes

Jean Gautreau

Chateau Sociando-Mallet

by Jean Gautreau
Blend of 66% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon and 4% Cabernet Franc. At barrel tasting, the richness of the wine was already impressive. The Cabernets were showing silky tannins and the Merlots were generously aromatic and well-balanced whilst maintaining this remarkable richness
