Sociando-Mallet 1997 - Haut-Medoc
At the origin of Château Sociando-Mallet: a Basque aristocrat in the 17th century, named "Sociondo", in the 18th century, vines belonging to the Demoiselle Anne de "Sossiondo". This information was found in documents, and you will have understood it, over the years the name became "Sociando" following a spelling error.
At the end of the 18th century Sociando was seized and then sold, until it came into the hands of Marie-Elisabeth Alaret in 1831, married Achille Mallet, sea captain. According to the custom of the time, it was appropriate to add his name to the domain, and thus was born "Sociando-Mallet" that you know today. The family will remain the owner until 1878. The estate passed through the hands of several merchants, including Delor, before becoming the property of Jean Gautreau since 1969. It is his daughter who has since taken up the torch.
The great wine of the domain, of the same name, is full-bodied, with a dark and deep color. They deserve to age in the cellar for several years to reveal their full potential and develop harmony and complexity. The greatest vintages will last 30 years without any problem!
