Wine Advocate (Robert M. Parker): 91+ Punkte für den Jahrgang 2010 A very classic wine for patient connoisseurs, Sociando Mallet makes no compromises and continues to produce one of the finest wines among non-classified estates in Haut-Medoc. Dense purple to the rim, the opaque purple-colored 2010 offers up notes of graphite, blueberry and black raspberry fruit, a hint of cassis, some licorice and wet rocks. Deep, full-bodied and almost excruciatingly tannic, this full-throttle, balls-to-the-wall style of wine needs at least 8-10 years of cellaring and should keep for three decades or more. Genussreife: 2021-2051 Weinwisser (René Gabriel): 18/20 Punkte für den Jahrgang 2010Sattes Purpur-Granat. Feinwürziges Brombeer- und Cassisbouquet, Lakritze und Edelhölzer. Grosser Gaumenauftritt, zeigt viel Volumen, reife, blau- bis schwarzbeerige Frucht, aromatisches Finale. Gehört mal wieder zu den ganz Großen des Jahrgangs. Genussreife: 2017-2034 Decanter (Steven Spurrier): 17/20 Punkte für den Jahrgang 2010Great depth of fruit, deep ripeness and resonant flavours, fine texture and vigour, very good future. Genussreife: 2015-2025
Dramatic, highly listenable, and painstakingly researched, The Great Desert Escape brings to light a little-known escape by 25 determined German sailors from an American prisoner-of-war camp.The disciplined Germans tunneled unnoticed through rock-hard, sunbaked soil and crossed the unforgiving Arizona desert. They were heading for Mexico, where there were sympathizers who could help them return to their fatherland. It was the only large-scale domestic escape by foreign prisoners in US history. Wrung from contemporary newspaper articles, interviews, and first-person accounts from escapees and the law enforcement officers who pursued them, The Great Desert Escape brings history to life. At the US Army’s prisoner-of-war camp at Papago Park just outside of Phoenix, life was, at the best of times, uneasy for the German Kreigsmariners. On the outside of their prison fences were Americans who wanted nothing more than to see them die slow deaths for their perceived roles in killing fathers and brothers in Europe. Many of these German prisoners had heard rumors of execution for those who escaped. On the inside were rabid Nazis determined to get home and continue the fight. At Papago Park in March 1944, a newly arrived prisoner who was believed to have divulged classified information to the Americans was murdered - hung in one of the barracks by seven of his fellow prisoners. The prisoners of war dug a tunnel six feet deep and 178 feet long, finishing in December 1944. Once free of the camp, the 25 Germans scattered. The cold and rainy weather caused several of the escapees to turn themselves in. One attempted to hitchhike his way into Phoenix, his accent betraying him. Others lived like coyotes among the rocks and caves overlooking Papago Park. All the while, the escapees were pursued by soldiers, federal agents, police, and native American trackers determined to stop them from reaching Mexico and freedom. 1. Language: English.
