Demoiselle de Sociando-Mallet 2019
Second Wine of Chateau Sociando-Mallet
Bright with concentrated aromas of plum, red cherry, dark berries and touches of oak. This wine is drinking well in its youth, and will age for a decade or so.
The history of Chateau Sociando-Mallet dates back to the discovery of a document from March 1633 referring to noble lands in the municipality of Saint-Seurin-de-Cadourne, belonging to a family of Basque origin called Sossiondo. There is also a document of 1750, relating to the vines of the Demoiselle Anne de Sossiondo. Over the years, “Sociondo” (or “Sossiondo”) has become “Sociando” as a result of a spelling error.
In 1831, following the wedding of the owner with a certain Achille Mallet, the estate is named Sociando-Mallet according to the custom of adding the name of the owner to that of his Castle. La Demoiselle de Sociando Mallet is the second wine of the domain. Since the 17th century, Sociando Mallet occupies the hill of Baleyron, one of the most beautiful terroirs of the Medoc.
