Funny how vintage 2000 is all of a sudden... 18 years old. Some wines that now (surprise!) have 8-10 years of age (Sociando Mallet, La Lagune, Cantemerle, for example) should be drinking very well.
Beautiful scents of dark fruits — this is a great, powerful, full bodied and rich bottle of Saint Estephe with a core of iron. Very powerful wine, very, very fine.

The Sociando Mallet estate sits at the northern end of St. Estèphe and sees some of the coldest weather in the region. Even in a warmer year like 1996 the wines stayed fresh and balanced, and today it is considered one of the best vintages for this Chateau. The vineyards are planted to 48% Cabernet Sauvignon, 47% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc and the vines are not green-harvested, as many other estates are, because they prefer the rustic, herbaceous note it lends to the wine. Fermentation occurs in a mixture of steel and cement, and aging takes place in almost entirely new French Oak for one year, with a small percentage aged in tank.
