The Story

Wine is a result of culture and nature coming together. For centuries it has been the fruit of both the vine and of man's labour. We are all familiar with the pleasure wine brings. The Roman expression : bonum vinum laetificat cor hominum ("good wine gladdens the heart") shows us how ancient this appreciation of fine wine actually is. Personnaly, I owe the privilege of being able to produce this precious nectar, in the prestigious appellation of Margaux, to my parents, Lucien and Marie-Jeanne. For me, of upmost importance is to strive to make a wine that captures all the finesse and elegance of the appellation.

 

Desmirail was classified a 3rd Grand Cru Classé as part of the 1855 classification. The wine is the result of a parcel of exceptional terroir within the Margaux appellation, which it represents perfectly with its delicate balance.

Vinification is carried out using modern techniques and equipment, but with an overarching respect for tradition. This results in a wine that can be enjoyed in its youth, but which also has a tremendous capacity to improve with age.

Strict grape selection and carefully adapted maturation methods are both key to making Château Desmirail into the Grand Vin it is.

Written Notes

Deep colour. Roasted chestnut, blackcurrant, graphite aromas. Rich and inky textured with deep set blackcurrant, black olive flavours, fine smooth fine tannins, ginger oak notes and brambly firm finish. Touch over extracted at the finish, but nice buoyancy and weight. 90 points.
  • 90p
Dark purple red with violet hue and almost black core. Well structured but slightly closes nose, dark berries and mild spices, but at the moment rather restrained fruit. Elegant, almost smoky roasting aroma in the background. Well structured on the palate, fine and pure fruit, discreet spiciness, velvety tannins, elegant character and good length.
