Blend: 85% Merlot, 15% Cab Franc, 5% Cab Sauvignon
95 Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
“Blended of 85% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon, the deep garnet-purple colored 2018 Mangot is a little closed to begin, unfurling to show off bright blackberry, crushed blueberries and warm plums scents plus notions of lilacs and cedar. Full-bodied and laden with layers of pure, vibrant black and blue fruits, it has a firm, rounded tannin texture and long, refreshing finish.”
93 Jeb Dunnuck
“The 2018 Château Mangot comes from a vineyard on the eastern side of Saint-Émilion and offers a fruit-forward, medium to full-bodied style that carries plenty of blue fruits, some green, herbal notes, moderate tannins, and terrific purity. It should easily be an outstanding wine. Tasted twice.”
92 James Suckling
“This is refined and linear with dark berries, chocolate and hints of dark tea. Medium body. Firm tannins. Spicy finish."
