Located east of the Saint–Émilion appellation, in the commune of Saint Etienne de Lisse, Château Mangot has 37 hectares in one piece, including 34 hectares of vineyards. With many ecological reserves (hedges, woods, embankments, strips grass ...) representing 15% of the surface, the biodiversity is a real asset of the land of Mangot, or rather, its terroirs ...Facing south , the combe or "circus" Mangot offers 4 areas of land : foot hills, hills, terraces and plateaus.
These soils have 21 parcels that are between 35 and 86 meters high , the highest point of the appellation. From a geological point of view, the asteroid limestone rests on a bed of limestone molasse (soft rock), which outcrops on the slopes (15% slope) around the limestone plateaus . This increased presence of limestone gives the wines of Mangot density and richness while preserving freshness, tension and minerality.
This diversity of clay and limestone soils is of great interest to the final blend, thus offering a qualitative consistency , while preserving the identity of the terroir and the typicalities of the vintages.
80% Merlot – 15% Cabernet Franc – 5% Cabernet Sauvignon
“Now almost mature, this richly textured wine is powered by dark tannins that sit comfortably with the black plum and berry fruits. The majority Merlot in the blend gives the wine weight and ripeness that are happily balanced by final juicy acidity. Drink from 2021.”
