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.
