Critic Scores, Reviews & Descriptions
92-93 JS / 90 DE / 90-92 JD / 90-92 VM /
Creamy and polished with a medium body and firm, silky tannins. Elegant. Lovely walnut, blackberry and graphite character. Sleek and fine. - James Suckling.
Fragrant and perfumed with blackcurrant and chocolate aromas. Tannins are forward, striking and mouthfilling but with a fine, chalky and powdery texture. The fruit is taking a back seat presently, the strawberry and red cherry a little dominated by those tannins, but this is captivating and has charm. Although not totally harmonious right now this feels stylish with an excellent texture, and I love the dark chocolate and bitter slate edges on the finish. - Georgina Hindle, Decanter.
The 2021 Château Desmirail has plenty of spice and chocolaty red and black fruits to go with a soft, supple, forward, yet satisfying style. It offers fruit, texture, and pleasure, and I suspect it will deliver the goods right out of the gate as well. I like it. - Jeb Dunnuck.
The 2021 Desmirail has a potentially endearing bouquet of black cherries, iris flower and peony; it just exudes "Margaux-ness.” The palate is medium-bodied with fine, quite solid tannins, compact black fruit and a saline/oyster edge on the finish. Quite focused and delivering good length, this should age well in bottle. - Neal Martin, Vinous Media.
