Located in the Haut-Medoc on the left bank of Bordeaux, Jean Gautreau, one of the best and most respected winemakers in Bordeaux, purchased Chateau Sociando-Mallet in 1969. In his words,
"Château Sociando-Mallet produces full-bodied wines with a deep, dark colour. Their complex bouquet is usually dominated by black fruit aromas with a touch of minerality and well-integrated, elegant oak. Often somewhat 'virile' when young, the wines gain in balance and complexity with age. They are fresh, straightforward, and have a wonderful length.
Château Sociando-Mallet has always been a wine with great ageing potential. A wine to be enjoyed even after 30 years in great vintages."
