SM 2014 jpeg[1]The vintage

The mild temperatures in the winter and spring of 2014 contributed to an early flowering in the vines for Chateau Sociando-Mallet. The summer brought cool and rainy weather throughout July and August, which contributed to an increase in weight for the estate’s Merlot grapes. However, the exceptional warm, dry weather in September and October brought the fruit to ideal ripeness, with the harvest occurring from 23rd September to 11th October.

The wine

The 2014 Chateau Sociando-Mallet is characterised by intense fruit with a finesse to the tannins. There is a certain acidity with this vintage which creates a freshness within the wine. James Suckling described the en primeur samples as ‘chewy and rich with serious fruit and nutty character’. The blend consists of 60% Merlot, 37% Cabernet Sauvignon and 3% Cabernet Franc.
