£ 17.00 tax incl.


 
La Demoiselle is the second wine of Sociando-Mallet. Made with a more balanced blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot (coming from younger vines), it is softer and ready to drink much earlier than its big brother. A fresh and fruity palate with soft tannins a nice and complex finish with a hint of cedar: this second wine is just brilliant.

What experts say  
  
15 - "Mid dark ruby. Rather murky nose as though the wood, which is clearly top-quality originally, is not the freshest. Polished and lightish. Very gravelly and high in acidity. Pretty hard work."
  
  15 - "It has changed since the En-Primeur tasting, keeping a very high standard. Less creamy but more classy, more vibrant and elegant. A beautiful structure with a palate of cedar, rose and fresh red currant."
