"Tight and focused with blackcurrant, walnut and dark-chocolate aromas and flavors. Medium body, fine tannins and a flavorful finish. Shows excellence for the second wine of Sociando. Drink after 2022."

Product Description:

"The Demoiselle de Sociando-Mallet is produced from the younger vines of the property and the plots whose soil is more favourable to the production of very good Merlot. This grape variety represents half of the final blend of this wine. The vines for our Demoiselle cover around twenty hectares and receive the same care and are tended in the same way as the rest of the vineyard throughout the year.

The "demoiselle" is a sort of dragonfly found in the M├ędoc. Like the dragonfly, this wine of the same name is light and elegant.

The ageing of our Demoiselle de Sociando-Mallet is carried out mainly in vats, to preserve the freshness and fruitiness of the Merlot. This easy-drinking wine can be enjoyed young. It is an ideal match for grilled meat and fish or shellfish dishes." - Winery
