Decanter: Lovely expression of cassis Cabernet fruit with Margaux charm and lift. This third growth is really coming into its classification. 91 Points
Bordeaux Red Blends
Margaux, 3rd Growth
Very dark crimson. Slight edge of Marmite/yeast extract. Then very sweet, gentle and Margauxish on the palate. Firm and impressive.

Wine Advocate: After a so-so 2014, the excellent 2015 Château Desmirail makes amends. It comes with a very comely, feminine and perfumed nose brandishing a whole bunch of rose petals in the glass. The palate is very well balanced, fleshy but still structured with fine grain tannin. It feels a little oaky towards the finish, but that should be subsumed with 4-5 years in bottle. One to check out after 3-4 years when it has found its groove. 90 - 92 Points
