Tasting Notes

The 2020 Mangot is an inky, full-throttle wine. crème de cassis, chocolate, lavender, licorice and sweet spice give this unctuous Saint-Émilion its extroverted personality. There's not a ton of subtlety here, but the Mangot is not about that. Nicely done in this style.

Score: 90 - 92

Antonio Galloni, Maturity: 2028-2038 01 June 2021

The 2020 Mangot, matured in 30% new oak, offers ripe black plum, bilberry and loamy scents on the nose, and just a very slight hickory scent in the background that might derive from the 20% use of amphorae. The palate is medium-bodied with crunchy black fruit, moderate depth, good acidity and a solid finish that just needs to develop more complexity and kick on a little. Fine, but the barrel maturation will be crucial in taking this up another level.

Score: 88 - 90

Neal Martin, Maturity: 2026 - 2030 27 May 2021

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 full-bodied, textured yet elegant style to go with complex notes of bouquet garni, scorched earth, violets, and leafy herbs. With beautiful fruit (cassis/black cherries), ripe, polished tannins, and outstanding length, I see no reason it would not offer pleasure in its youth yet also cruise for 15-20 years in cold cellars.

Score: 90 - 92

I like the balance and tannin integration to this chewy, polished red. Blackberry, blueberry and hazelnut undertones. From organically grown grapes.

Score: 93 - 94

James Suckling, 23 May 2021

Composed of 75% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon, the deep garnet-purple colored 2020 Mangot is scented of ripe black plums, blackberry preserves and black cherry compote, followed by hints of licorice, dark chocolate and cardamom, with a waft of wild mushrooms. The medium to full-bodied palate gives a great intensity of juicy black fruits with soft, rounded tannins and just enough freshness to support, finishing earthy.

Score: 92 - 94

Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW, Wine Advocate, Maturity: 2025-2040 20 May 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 grilled, smoked rosemary finish. 20% new oak, 30% amphora. Freres Todeschini are the owners here.

Score: 94
