2015 Desmirail, Margaux

SKU #1390172 93 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark The 2015 Château Desmirail shows how good 2015 was for the appellation of Margaux. Offering classic red fruits (some cassis as well), toasted bread, white chocolate and background oak, this beauty is medium to full-bodied, elegant and polished on the palate, with ultra-fine tannin. With the telltale elegance and nuance of the appellation, it needs 2-3 years to integrate its oak and then will shine for at least 10-15 years. Inner quote mark (11/2017)

90-92 points Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark 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. (NM) Inner quote mark (4/2016)

91 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2015 Desmirail has a nicely detailed bouquet with blackberry, briary and iris aromas, gaining intensity in the glass, a Margaux with commendable presence. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin. This is saline in the mouth, quite brine-like towards the finish but I appreciate the length and persistence here. This fulfils the promise that it showed out of barrel and constitutes one of the longer-term Margaux wines. (NM) Inner quote mark (3/2018)

91 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Lovely, with crushed plum, boysenberry and blackberry fruit inlaid seamlessly with warmed anise, singed mesquite, Lapsang souchong tea and sandalwood notes. The fine-grained finish flows wonderfully. Best from 2022 through 2035. (JM) Inner quote mark (3/2018)

James Suckling

Outer quote mark Quite some smoky oak and a hint of caramel in here, but there are also some nice powdery tannins to balance the richness. Fair length. Drink or hold. Inner quote mark (2/2018)

The Rodney Dangerfield of Margaux classified growths, this wine is sweet and sexy. The elegance of Margaux and elegance of the 2015 vintage worked well here. Plenty of alcohol, but the balance is superb. Another great vintage ending in 5--like 45-55-75-85-95-05. Serve with a pork loin.
Drink from 2022 to 2035
