  • A real purity of fruit is showcased in this elegant Margaux, with an abundance of blackcurrant, black cherry, and fruits of the forest, complemented by subtle hints of cedar, toast, and cinnamon. Elegant with silky tannins, it is perfectly balanced through to a lingering finish.

The vineyard is located around the town of Cantenac, neighboring Chateau Palmer and Cantenac Brown. Bordeaux enjoys a maritime climate, influenced by the sea, with warm summers and cool winters. The soils are made up of Margaux's renowned free-draining gravel which contributes to the rich style of wine imbued with finesse and elegance. The vines are trained according to a Double Guyot trellising system and are green harvested to concentrate the flavors in the remaining fruit. The grapes are carefully selected and harvested by hand when they have reached optimum maturity.

Chateau Desmirail is a Third Growth property in the 1855 classification, situated in an outstanding terroir within the Margaux appellation. The elegant manor house dates back to the 18th century when the name was given by Jean Desmirail upon marrying Demoiselle Rausan and receiving the chateau as part of her dowry. Today the property is owned by Denis Lurton who took over from his father Lucien, an iconic figure in Bordeaux wine, in 1992. The chateau which comprises 37 hectares of vineyard, is situated in the commune of Cantenac and is well placed on the Route des Chateaux. Initial is their second wine, produced in part from younger vines and made in the same elegant house style.
