The average age of the vines on this small property is close to 100 years, and this mix from 2009 of 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Franc came from a yield of 25 hectoliters per hectare. acres. The vines sit on the famous iron-rich soils, which the French call crasse de fer, and the result is an astonishingly opaque purple wine with an extraordinary nose of blackberries, charcoal, graphite and crushed chalk. It is densely knitted, with full power and relatively high tannins. Its noble sweetness and expansiveness as well as its wide, tasty finish make this a convincing wine of high quality.
Chateau Petit Mangot is dense, rich and fruity. The aroma is intense with ripe, dark berries as well as a touch of black currants, blackberries and cask. Great and powerful taste with fine elements of plum sweetness and black currants that elegantly match the well-integrated oak dish. A wine that can be drunk now, but can manage to be stored in the cellar for 5-8 years.
