This third growth estate was founded in 1661 by Jean Desmirail, who obtained the vineyard as many people did in that day, as a dowry through marriage to one of the many daughters from the Rauzan family. The vineyard is 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 29% Merlot and 1% Petit Verdot planted on deep gravel, clay and sandy soils. Look for notes of dark cherry, licorice, rose petals and minerals.

NM 92: "The 2015 Desmirail has a very pure and refined bouquet that is one of the most impressive that I have encountered in recent years. The palate is very ripe and refined with a fine line of acidity, fresh in the mouth with appealing tension, building gently with just enough tension on the finish to keep you anticipating the next sip. This constitutes one of the best wines from the estate in recent years. Anticipated maturity: 2021 - 2038." - Neal Martin

WS 91: "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. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 6,667 cases made." - Wine Spectator

WA 90-92: "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."
