(JS 94-95 points) A juicy and solid young St Emilion with crushed stone, hints of large grains of sea salt and a black berry character throughout. Full and chewy, but polished. New Grand Cru. Made from biodynamically...

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, April 2023

(WA 93-95 points) A wine that gets my nod as this dynamic estate's finest to date is the 2022 Mangot, a medium to full-bodied, ample and layered wine evocative of cherries, dark berries, licorice and rose petals. Deep...

(92-94 points) Elegant, soft, fresh, and deep, the wine quickly focuses you on its layers of ripe, sweet, fresh, dark, red pit fruits. The long, powerful, mineral-edged finish, with its layers of plums, cherries and salt...

Vinous, May 2023

(VN 91-93 points) The 2022 Mangot is another impressive wine from this château. Dark red/purplish fruit, lavender, sage, mint and blood orange. Mangot is no longer the brooding powerhouse it once was, but it is still a...

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 2022 Chateau Mangot Bordeaux Blend from Saint Emilion, Bordeaux, is garnering high praise from professional reviewers, marking it as an excellent vintage for this dynamic estate. This red wine, produced by Chateau Mangot and sealed with a traditional cork, is noted for its deep, rich color and vibrant character.

Jeff Leve from TheWineCellarInsider.com scores it between 92 to 94 points. He describes the wine as "elegant, soft, fresh, and deep," with a focus on "layers of ripe, sweet, fresh, dark, red pit fruits." He emphasizes the "long, powerful, mineral-edged finish" with lingering notes of "plums, cherries, and salt." Leve suggests that the wine will be best enjoyed from 2025 to 2042, highlighting its aging potential.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, represented by William Kelley, gives the wine a remarkable 93 to 95 points. Kelley praises it as possibly "this dynamic estate's finest to date," describing it as a "medium to full-bodied, ample and layered wine evocative of cherries, dark berries, licorice, and rose petals." He notes its "deep, concentrated and fleshy" nature with a "vibrant core of fruit and a long, mouthwatering finish," calling it a "seamless, complete Saint-Émilion" and a top purchase for the en primeur campaign.

James Suckling also awards the wine a high score of 94 to 95 points, highlighting its "juicy and solid" character with "crushed stone, hints of large grains of sea salt, and a black berry character throughout." He acknowledges its "full and chewy, but polished" texture and mentions that it is made from biodynamically grown grapes, adding an eco-friendly note to its appeal.

Jane Anson, with a score of 92 points, notes the wine's "intense bright berry fruits" and "cedar smoking on the aromatics." She describes it as "enjoyable" with "edges of sandalwood and incense," and although she detects "heat on the finish," she also appreciates its "succulence and impact."

Vinous, through Antonio Galloni, rates the wine between 91 to 93 points, calling it "another impressive wine from this château." He describes it as featuring "dark red/purplish fruit, lavender, sage, mint, and blood orange," and appreciates its "balance of fruit intensity and energy."

Overall, the 2022 Chateau Mangot Bordeaux Blend is a well-regarded wine with a promising future, characterized by its rich fruit profile, balanced intensity, and potential for aging.
