Chateau Mangot (Futures Pre-Sale) 2021
Critical AcclaimAll Vintages
Barrel Sample: 91-92
The 2021 Mangot offers up notes of sweet berries, cherries and licorice, followed by a medium to full-bodied, deep and lively palate that's a touch structurally assertive. Time may be kind to it, but I suspect it will always remain somewhat firm. Barrel Sample: (89 - 91)
The 2021 Château Mangot offers an exotic, perfumed, medium-bodied style in its red and blue fruits as well as sappy flower and almost tropical-slanted aromatics. I like its tannins, it has nicely integrated oak, and a great finish. Barrel Sample : 89-91
In 1980, Anne Marie, the youngest of the PETIT daughters, gave up her pharmacy studies to come back to the family property.
In 1981, she married Jean Guy Todeschini: a master stone mason by trade, and he gradually came to support her more and more at Mangot.
Until 1989, Anne-Marie and Jean-Guy would share the running of the two family businesses and bringing up their young sons, Karl (born in 1982) and Yann (1984): two budding wine growers…
From 1989 to 1998, they completely transformed the vineyards at Mangot (re-structuring, re-planting, terracing and drainage works) to bring on the quality in leaps and bounds, year after year, and finally obtain the GRAND CRU label for the estate’s 34 hectares.
In 2001, it was the turn of all the buildings to be modernised, a return to his roots for Jean Guy, a stone mason and architect at heart…
From 1996 to 2008, they travelled in France and abroad to promote the new face of Mangot and look for partners.
On top of their boundless energy and capacity for hard work, thanks to their perspective gained outside the wine world, Jean-Guy and Anne Marie have revived and renewed Mangot, restructuring the vineyards and the cellar, with a single goal in mind: Quality.
