Chateau Sociando-Mallet Haut-Medoc, 1985

This wine was a perfect accompaniment to slow baked beef brisket with lotke for Christmas Eve dinner.

Medium deep with amber. Cork very difficult to remove but very little sediment. Dark fruit smells; blackberry and black currant along with tertiary smells. Still has good balance and fruit flavors but is less elegant on the palate than the 1981 Haut Bages Liberal that accompanied it at the table.
