    The Dazzling Smoothness of a Margaux Full of Charm

    A Third Classified Growth of the Margaux appellation, Chateau Desmirail has become one of the most successful references of the appellation in recent vintages with wines that have distinguished themselves through their constant improvement in quality. Today, Chateau Desmirail is one of the sure values of the Left Bank of the Bordeaux region, offering the experience of a wonderfully accomplished Margaux.

    Product of an atypical and challenging vintage that did not spare the vineyard of the estate, the Chateau Desmirail 2017 rewards all the careful attention paid to the vineyard to the winery.

    The atypical blend of this year includes a higher proportion of Merlot (55%) than in other vintages, supplemented by Cabernet Sauvignon (35%) and Petit Verdot (10%). The result is a wine with a great aromatic expression, displaying the pure notes of dark berries, cassis and cherry evolving, when the wine is swirled, elegant roasted notes, reminiscent of coffee. On the palate, the wine delivers a smooth texture of great finesse, which remains on the mid-palate with its softness and the freshness of the fruit. The aromas linger into a power, coffee-flavored finish, revealing the presence of elegant oak.

    Wine Advocate-Parker :
    Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, the 2017 Desmirail features woody/oaky notions to start, opening out to reveal Black Forest cake, blackcurrant cordial and forest floor scents with a waft of Marmite toast. Medium-bodied, the palate is quite chewy with notable oak and just enough fruit, finishing a tad firm and abrupt.
