This is a property to watch in Saint Emilion. Recent vintages have received high praise from the critics but prices remain very reasonable. Organically farmed, the blend here is approximately 75% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon.
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, concentrated and fleshy, with a vibrant core of fruit and a long, mouthwatering finish, this seamless, complete Saint-Émilion is sure to be one of the best purchases of the en primeur campaign.
The 2022 Mangot has a plush nose of black cherries, blueberry and violet aromas, quite showy but it retains decent delineation. The palate is medium-bodied with grippy, powdery tannins, mocha-tinged black fruit toward the finish. It should drink well after 3-4 years in bottle.
