We were introduced to Château Mangot by our friends at Château Gombaude Guillot in Pomerol. They are friends and work on the same organic principles.
This is one of the very few properties in St Émilion being elevated to Grand Cru Classé (as from the 2022 vintage). Situated to the east of the Saint-Emilion appellation, within the boundaries of Saint Étienne de Lisse, Château Mangot consists of 37 hectares in a single stretch, of which 34 hectares are planted with vines, all lovingly tended. The blend is 80% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon, aged in inox for four months before 13-15 months in a mixture of new oak (30%), inox and amphora.
When we tasted the 2018 we just said, ‘we must have this!’
