The mostly Merlot 2010 Chateau Mangot, Saint Emilion


The 2010 Chateau Mangot, Saint Emilion Grand Cru is a largely forward wine with an outright display of its oak aging.  It is a solid, flavorful wine that requires more time for the oak to integrate.  This wine is available at MacArthur Beverages.

2010 Chateau Mangot, Saint Emilion Grand Cru – $23
Imported by MacArthur Liquors.  This wine is a blend of 85% Merlot with the remaining Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon aged 14 months in 40% new oak barrels.  Alcohol 14%.  The oak shows through the fruit with chocolate flavors, polished wood, and powdery, sweet cocoa tannins.  The fruit is of an attractive blue and black nature, existing in a wee bit of structure that will allow a bit of aging.  Some heat breaks through with air.  ** Now – 2020.
