Description

Sociando-Mallet has throned on the Butte de Baleyron, one of the finest gravelly terroirs in the Médoc, since the 17th century. Situated in the commune of Saint-Seurin-de-Cadourne, north of Pauillac, the vineyard overlooks the Gironde estuary on a bend in the river. Sociando-Mallet's terroir consists of Günz gravel over a deep layer of clay-limestone soil. This terroir perfectly regulates water supply and enables Cabernet Sauvignon to ripen extremely well and Merlot to acquire depth and complexity. This terroir is Sociando's soul. It provides the wine with complex structure, freshness, and elegance. The Demoiselle de Sociando-Mallet takes its name from the "demoiselle", a species of dragonfly that lives in the Médoc. The youngest vines from the Sociando-Mallet estate are used to produce this wine. It is a wine made from a 20-hectare vineyard dominated with Merlot vines. Its 2015 vintage comes from a blend of 65% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc.
