James Suckling 94-95
A juicy and solid young St Emilion with crushed stone, hints of large grains of sea salt and a black berry character throughout. Full and chewy, but polished. New Grand Cru. Made from biodynamically grown grapes.
Robert Parker 93-95
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-Emilion is sure to be one of the best purchases of the en primeur campaign.
The 2022 Mangot is another impressive wine from this chateau. Dark red/purplish fruit, lavender, sage, mint and blood orange. Mangot is no longer the brooding powerhouse it once was, but it is still a pretty heady Saint-Emilion. In 2022, it s the balance of fruit intensity and energy that impresses most. Tasted three times.
Anticipated maturity: 2025-2042
Jane Anson 92
Intense bright berry fruits, cedar smoking on the aromatics, this is enjoyable, edges of sandalwood and incense, heat on the finish but also succulence and impact. A high energy wine from Yann and Karl Todeschini, Stephane Toutoundji consultant.
Anticipated maturity: 2025-2034
