Lot #305. Sociando Mallet 1985

Description: Consists of 3 Bottles, 0.75L
Score: 92 NM.
"The 1985 Sociando-Mallet, picked between September 30 and October 18, has a very savory bouquet with scents of Italian cured meat, dry straw and a touch of black fruit that is usurped by strong black truffle and smoky scents. It is firmly into its secondary phase, but what I appreciate is that it is very “1985.” The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, more cohesive and with greater density than the 1983. It is focused and, despite the aromatics, feels vivacious and lively all the way through to the finish. Fact is, this is as good as the 1982 Sociando-Mallet and represents one of my favorite wines of the decade. Tasted at the vertical tasting at Sociando-Mallet." Vinous, Mar 2019
Provenance: The Multitude Cellar
Notes: 1 Very top shoulder, 1 top shoulder, upper mid shoulder, 2 nicked capsules, damp stained, 2 wine stained, lightly faded, lightly scuffed labels.
