Decanter, April 2021

Bright plum colours full of flesh and bright fruits. Muscular on the attack, with poise and focus, and pulsating with blueberry fruits and saline-drenched minerality. Good stuff, enjoyable and impressively balanced with a...

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, April 2023

The 2020 Mangot has turned out beautifully, bursting with aromas of cherries, wild berries, rose petals, blood orange and bay leaf. Medium to full-bodied, supple and seamless, it's pure and vibrant, with a layered core of...

(JD 90-92 points) Emerging from a beautiful vineyard on the eastern side of the appellation and 75% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc, and the rest Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2020 Château Mangot offers a classy, medium to...

Vinous, February 2023

The 2020 Mangot is a heady, full-throttle wine, just as it was en primeur. Jammy dark red/purplish fruit, lavender, sweet oak and licorice are front and center. There's not much subtlety here, but that does not seem to be...

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.

The 2020 Chateau Mangot is a Bordeaux Blend hailing from the esteemed region of Saint Emilion in Bordeaux, France. This red wine exudes elegance and finesse, showcasing the true essence of a classic St.-Emilion.

In the glass, the Chateau Mangot displays a deep, bright plum color that is inviting and vibrant. The nose is filled with enticing aromas of ripe plum, earthy bark, wet earth, and savory mushroom. As the wine opens up, hints of hazelnuts add a delightful touch. This bouquet is a testament to the wine's complexity and depth.

On the palate, the Chateau Mangot reveals its true character. It is medium-bodied with a firm and linear structure, complemented by integrated and chewy tannins. The flavors mirror the aromas, with plum taking center stage, accompanied by subtle notes of blueberry and a saline-drenched minerality. This wine displays excellent balance and poise, leaving a lasting impression.

Renowned wine critic James Suckling awarded the 2020 Chateau Mangot an impressive score of 93 points. He describes it as a "real St.-Emilion" and suggests that it should be enjoyed after 2025. Decanter also lauds this wine, giving it a score of 94 points. They describe it as muscular on the attack, with a grilled, smoked rosemary finish.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate also recognizes the brilliance of the 2020 Mangot, awarding it 94 points. They praise its pure and vibrant nature, layered fruit core, and velvety tannins. Jeb Dunnuck, another respected critic, gives this wine a score of 92 points and notes its elegant and textured style.

The 2020 Chateau Mangot is undeniably an exceptional wine that offers both immediate pleasure and the potential for long-term cellaring. It is a true gem from Saint Emilion, surpassing many of its more well-known neighbors. With its impressive reviews and delightful characteristics, this Bordeaux Blend is a must-try for any wine enthusiast.
