Château Sociando-Mallet 1996 Haut-Médoc. Brisk red currant and cherry fruit dances over a broad base of tobacco and herbs. Lively and beautifully balanced, on the leading edge of maturity, but with lots of time still to go. Really delicious.
cheers, Patchen

Only one left for me. So good... and so, so reasonably priced!

A lovely wine! Still 6 bottles left. :D I wondering whether to take the plunge on some bottles of 2006 at c.€30. Any experience, anyone?
