Full-bodied and laden with layers of pure, vibrant black and blue fruits, it has a firm, rounded tannin texture and long, refreshing finish.- LPB collapse

This is an innovative, tidy style of wine, which in part comes from their move to a different way of aging -- both new, French oak and clay amphora. 91-93 Read more at:https://www.thewinecellarinsider.com/search-wine-tasting-notes/?szSearch=2018+Mangot collapse

It should easily be an outstanding wine. Tasted twice. collapse

The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins and well judged acidity. This feels smooth and enticing with judicious use of new oak towards the finish. This is the best Mangot that I have tasted. Excellent. -- Neal Martin collapse

Chateau Mangot

Chateau Mangot is a Right Bank Bordeaux estate situated in the east of the Saint-Emilion appellation, within the boundaries of Saint Etienne de Lisse. The estate has a long history dating back to 1546, described in 1559 as having plots of vines planted in ‘belts’ and ‘lines’.

The estate’s 85-acre vineyard is planted primarily with Merlot complemented by Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. The average age of the vines is 40 years with some Merlot parcels over 60 years of age. The vineyard has four zones of terroir that include 21 separate plots at altitudes between 115 and 280 feet. Soils are mostly clay and limestone making for interesting final blends. The greater limestone presence also gives the Mangot wines density and fullness while retaining freshness, tightness and minerality.
