A 3rd Grand Cru classé from a top vintage rated 17.5 by Jancis Robinson at £35: sometimes, it is possible. Thanks to an ideal weather all year long, Château Desmirail 2010 is a superb and complex Margaux with an expressive nose of black currant with wooden notes. The palate is big and elegant. The subtle and long finish only confirms the quality of this vintage. Desmirail 2010 is at the very beginning of its drinking window, it will age very well for the years to come.

|What experts say|
17.5 "The merest hint of sweet oak here on the nose. Soft, curry-powder nose. Then quite dry tannins. But all set for a pretty glorious future. Quite dramatic."
91 "This has ample stuffing, with layers of plum, red currant and loganberry fruit mixed with notes of bay leaf, warm paving stone and taut red licorice. Charcoal-stained grip coats the finish. Best from 2014 through 2026."
16.5 "Elegant and expressive Margaux fruit, almost understated, but has ripeness and finesse, very attractive medium term. Drink 2015-25."
16.5 "Notes of prunes and spices on the nose, firm tannins. More male than usual."
17 "It will just need a bit of time to show us its beautiful structure made of spices and black fruit."
