Tasted at the Union de Grand Cru in London. The Desmirail -09 has a lovely, very pure Margaux bouquet with touches of crushed violet and pure black cherry mixing with blackberry and wild hedgerow. Natural and composed. The palate is medium-bodied with a mocha-tinged entry, good weight and very fine tannins, focused and fresh as a daisy towards the finish. Bon vin! Tasted October 2011.
