Château Mangot 2008 – Saint-Emilion Grand Cru 

Château Mangot 2008 – Saint-Emilion Grand Cru 

The nose is aromatic, elegant, racy and offers a beautiful finesse of the grain and a small precision / intensity. It reveals notes of cassis and small notes of blackberry associated with small touches of fleshy Gariguette strawberry, discreet hints of spices, Sichuan pepper as well as very discreet hints of cannelle (in the background) and undergrowth. The palate is fresh, fruity, well-balanced and offers a small precision / intensity, minerality, a beautiful acidulous frame, a beautiful jutosity, roundness, a beautiful finesse of the grain as well as a small straightness and a beautiful guideline. On the palate this wine expresses notes of blackberry and very ripe cassis associated with fine touches of raspberry, discreet hints of spices as well as an imperceptible touch of pepper and almond on the finish. Tannins are slightly firm. Good length.
