2000 Chateau Desmirail, Grand Cru Classe Margaux
|Date tasted:||1 September 2004|
|Price when tasted:||£20|
This third-growth Margaux was resurrected in the 1980s by Lucien Lurton, and the vines have now matured to produce classic blackcurranty claret with a touch of cedar wood. A supple wine of great character, length and purity of fruit, marvellous for the next 10 years.
