Medium ruby. Roasted black fruits and exotic oak spices on the nose. Fat, full and sweet; lush and mouthfilling but manages to retain a certain elegance. Finishes with fine tannins and excellent length for the year.
Very dark crimson. Thick, cassis. Quite rich, very sweet, very beguiling. Perhaps not the most distinctively Médoc wine. Could almost be New World. Fresh and clean on the finish. Still some quite furry tannins. A very particular style that classicists might not enjoy. (JR) 16.5/20
Sociando Mallet's opaque ruby/purple-colored 1999 reveals notes of wet steel, liquified minerals, black cherries/black currants, and subtle wood. Aromatically, there is not much difference between this wine and a renowned classified growth such as Leoville Las Cases. In the mouth, it is medium-bodied, with high tannin for a 1999, a long, persistent finish, and very good to excellent concentration and purity. This is a surprisingly backward wine, but then this is Sociando Mallet, the perennial overachiever making wines of exceptional longevity. (Bottles of 1982 and 1975 drunk in December were still not fully mature.) (RP)
Very aromatic, with blackberry, blueberry and mint. Medium-bodied, featuring fine tannins and a caressing finish with a refined texture. Just right. (JS, Web-2010)
