A Third Classified Growth of the Margaux appellation, Château 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, Château 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 Château 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-flavoured finish, revealing the presence of elegant oak.
