Description

A Margaux Grand Cru Classé with wonderful balance and finesse

The estate

Château Desmirail, 3rd Grand Cru Classé in Margaux in 1855, illustrate all the typicity of this exceptional terroir through its wines. Owned by the Lurton family since 1992, Château Desmirail has built up an infrastructure to match its terroir, enabling it to raise this Cru Classé to the very highest level.

The vineyard

Château Desmirail 2022 is a Margaux wine produced from a vineyard of around forty hectares, cultivated with the greatest respect for the environment and resting on gravel soils dating from the Quaternary period.

The wine

2022 marks Denis Lurton's 30th year at the helm of the estate. To mark the occasion, the bottles of this vintage are adorned with a label designed by Anaïs VINDEL, a young artist from Bordeaux. With its warm ochre and clay tones, this label is a reference to the amphorae, the historic container for the first wines to be sold internationally.

The vintage

2022 was a year marked by a particularly dry summer punctuated by several heatwaves. The vines stood up well to these extreme conditions. The harvest, which began on 8 September, was the earliest that Didier Lurton has ever known. This early start ensured that the fruit remained fresh. Despite low yields, given the small size of the grapes (30% smaller than in a normal year), the fruit was of high quality.

Blend

Merlot (50%), Cabernet Sauvignon (40%), Petit Verdot (5%) and Cabernet Franc (5%).
