Description/ Tasting Notes

Has a bashful nose that demands coaxing: dusty black fruit and a scent of an old English stately home. The palate delivers plenty of earthy black fruit on the entry. There is good weight here with a dense spicy, slightly metallic finish.

Winery Info/ Brand



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.

Region Info/ Origin



The Margaux appellation encompasses the village of Margaux and the neighbouring villages of Arsac, Labarde, Soussans and Cantenac. Being the most southerly of the Médoc's appellations, it has the thinnest soil in the region with the highest proportion of gravel that allows the soil to drain very well. The wine from this area are very susceptible to weather effects during the growing season. Encountering all seasons with adequate irrigation, relatively good rainfall and good amount of sunlight, the crop yields a bountiful harvest year-on-year. The winery takes pride and value that captures the essence that reflects their unique brand.
