2020 Château Desmirail  (Margaux) 90

Smoke, tobacco, cigar box, earth, leaf and currant scents bring you to a savory, fresh, bright, chewy core of red fruits and dusty tannins. Give this a few years of aging and it could show better. 89-91 Pts

2018 Château Desmirail  (Margaux) 87

Medium-bodied, with a lean edge to its slightly firm red fruits, here, you find a blend of various, bright red fruits ranging from red plums to cranberry and dried pit fruit on the nose and palate. Consumers longing for the days of classic Bordeaux will appreciate this more than I did. 87 Points

Medium-bodied, strict, firm, lean, this old-school-styled wine provides bright, red cranberry and dried pit fruit notes. Consumers that long for the days of 70's styled, classic Bordeaux will appreciate this much more than I did. 85-87 Pts

Medium-bodied and fresh with a plummy quality, this wine is focused on red fruits and sweet-smelling earth. Bright and a little strict, give this a few years to come around and soften. 90 Points

Opening with light, bright strawberries, this wine has a fresh palate presence and a quick cherry finish. There is not much wine in this bottle. 82-84 Pts

2012 Château Desmirail  (Margaux) 85

Medium bodied, and on the bright, lifted, red fruit side of the style range, the wine lacks the depth and intensity to be more than an OK Bordeaux. The finish has a cedar, espresso, leafy quality to the crisp red fruits. 85 Points

2010 Château Desmirail  (Margaux) 90

Medium bodied, soft, subtle and silky, with freshness in the sweet, ripe, dark red fruits and a hint of floral characteristics on the nose. Nice now, but this will be better with just a few more years of bottle age. 90 Points

Medium-bodied, fresh, bright, developed, classic styled wine with cedar, tobacco and earthy notes on top of the red currants and red plums. The wine is correct, but not exciting. 88 Points

2006 Château Desmirail  (Margaux) 87

Medium-bodied, bright, crisp red berries with an oaky edge and a touch of florality are found here. A bit stoic on the palate, this is a reserved, classic styled wine. 87 Points

2005 Château Desmirail  (Margaux) 87

On a fast pace to full maturity, the wine lacks the structure and depth found in the best wine in this year. Medium bodied, softly textured, with a bright, fresh, red berry approach, this is already close to fully mature. 87 Points

1928 Château Desmirail  (Margaux) 75

Bordering on dead, in the respirator, hanging on to its last few breaths of life, the bricky color and secondary notes were all about earth, tobacco and forest scents. There was little fruit to be found. On the other hand, at close to 85 years old, there is something to be said for that. We should all still be walking around. 75 Points
