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.
93-95 points, Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Wine Advocate (Issue # Interim - Apr 2019)
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.
