A 5-Century Family Legacy of Excellence in Saint-Emilion
With a medium to deep colour, this wine presents a complex and intensely aromatic nose, featuring ripe berries, plum, cassis, liquorice, and delicate floral hints. The palate is medium to full-bodied, boasting a core of fresh, rich, and ripe fruit. It showcases remarkable harmony between the fruit, fine tannins, and acidity, resulting in a rich and almost creamy texture that lingers through a long and elegant finish that reveals additional notes of spice and coca.

STORY BEHIND THIS WINE
Château Mangot boasts a rich history spanning over five centuries, starting in 1556. The Petit family, beginning with Simone and Jean in 1954, worked tirelessly to expand the vineyard to its current 34 hectares. Anne-Marie and Jean-Guy Todeschini ushered in a new era of growth and quality in 1989. Their sons, Karl and Yann, injected fresh energy in 2008, introducing innovative wines like M...Rosé and TODESCHINI Distique. The vineyard, certified organic since 2017, prioritizes environmental sustainability. With 15% of the land dedicated to ecological reserves, biodiversity thrives. Château Mangot's distinct terroirs, from foothills to plateaus, culminate at the highest point in the appellation, offering a unique expression of their Saint-Emilion Grand Cru grapes.
