For £40 this is a decent Margaux in a top year that’s drinking great already but will still improve 😉

📍 Chateau Desmirail 2010

🏵 90 points

🍇 60% Cabernet Sauvignon & 40% Merlot

🍷 Opaque deep ruby

👃 Damp soggy earth, squished leaves & rock minerals through dark plum & blackcurrant w/ mocha, red liquorice, herbs & broken pencils

👄 Med body of creamy smooth mocha & liquorice infused dark plum & blackcurrant w/ a slight dry mineral storey backbone

🎯 Med+ dark plump earthy fruits finale w/ a dry stoney mineral mocha liquorice linger

Dumb call opening this wine in its infancy. Tannic beast. Still has a nice red rose perfume to it. Other than that I got scents of tar, tobacco and vanilla. In terms of taste there were solid notes of cassis, plum and chocolate. Like every young left banker I have tried the tannins are understandably fierce. The structure is obviously there but needs so much time. What have I done...if anything this wine affirms my right bank favouritism in that the merlot allows them to be celebrated in their youth.

At $25 not worth it. Nice nose but slightly flat taste.
