The 2015 Desmirail is plump and juicy. Black cherry, plum, mocha, spice, new leather and mint flesh out in a decidedly forward, succulent Margaux built for near term drinking. This is a solid effort from proprietor Denis Lurton. Apr 2016, www.Vinous.com

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. Apr 2016, www.eRobertParker.com, Drink: 2021-2040

A lovely beam of crushed plum and blackberry fruit is carried by velvety tannins, ending with a warm ganache note on the finish. Mar 2016, James Molesworth, www.WineSpectator.com

Very dark crimson. Slight edge of Marmite/yeast extract. Then very sweet, gentle and Margauxish on the palate. Firm and impressive. Apr 2016, www.JancisRobinson.com, Drink: 2024-2038

Lovely expression of cassis Cabernet fruit with Margaux charm and lift. This third growth is really coming into its classification. Apr 2016, Steven Spurrier, www.Decanter.com, Drink: 2021-2030

What can be a slightly disappointing Third Growth has over-delivered in 2015. Grassy, graphite-like aromas are complemented by stylish oak, plenty of sappy fruit and impressive definition. The tannins are very slinky indeed. Apr 2016, www.timatkin.com, Drink: 2022-2030
