Marks and reviews
A Margaux Third Classified Growth of 1855, Chateau Desmirail illustrates, through its wines, the typical qualities of its exceptional terroir. Owned by the Lurton family since 1992, Chateau Desmirail has equipped itself with an infrastructure that matches its terroir, allowing for the elevation of this Cru Classe to the highest level.
Chateau Desmirail is a Margaux wine that stems from a forty-hectare vineyard cultivated with the greatest respect for the environment, using sustainable viticultural practices. The soils are made up of gravel dating from the Quaternary period.
The 2017 vintage was atypical and not very clement, which did not spare the estate's vineyards, which were considerably affected by frost. Chateau Desmirail 2017 comes as a great reward for all the attention paid from the vine to the cellar along with the masterful vinification process.
Cabernet Sauvignon (35%)
Petit Verdot (10%).
The nose is highly expressive, revealing pure notes of small black fruits (blackcurrant, cherry) which evolve into elegant roasted notes reminiscent of coffee when aerated.
On the palate, the wine has a smooth, delicate texture, which does not lose its hold in the mid-palate thanks to the softness and crunchiness of the fruit. The aromatic persistence is prolonged in the powerful coffee-flavored finish, revealing the presence of elegant oak.
