Sociando Mallet still youngish after 37 years

It gives so much pleasure for a very modest price
Even the 1992 was really shining. Stellar and classic

Parker predicted maturity 2005-2040, not sure if I ll be still alive, and not sure if still bottles left in 2040, but now there are still 11 bts ( of 18) left. Drinking fine now.

Popped this tonight. Not cheap, but singing

I have a weakness for 1986 and 1988 left bank

1986 +88 Ducru can be tainted with (kind of) TCA stink …
I sold my bottles

THIS. I had terrible luck with these two vintages of Ducru. No pun intended, but tainted me on Ducru for many years.

No issues on last night’s bottle. Hanukkah saved!

The '86 Sociando is outstanding and a sleeper for the vintage.

Didn’t have any to sell, but all '86 DB I had from others were tainted.
Have had up-and-downs with 1986 Sociando, mostly down.
My bad luck, good that the ones here showed well.

I’ve never had a clean 86 DB :confused:

You should have been here last night
