Tasting Note:

"An impressive cru beourgeois, Sociando Mallet's opaque purple-colored 1996 displays a tight but nicely scented nose of minerals, licorice, cassis, and high quality vanillin from new oak barrels. In the mouth, the wine is dense and full-bodied with a boat-load of tannin, as well as gobs of extract, glycerin, and depth. This example will age at a glacial pace. However it is unquestionably of high quality, and the requisite fruit and depth are present to balance out the wine's structural components."

89/90+/100 - Robert Parker, Wine Advocate, February 1998
