Chateau Desmirail is not well known today. In fact, it’s one of the more obscure, 1855 classified growths in the entire Medoc. But it was not always that way. In the 17th century, the wines of Chateau Dauzac were quite popular. This Margaux estate was officially founded in 1661 by Jean Desmirail, who obtained the Bordeaux wine property like many people did in that day, as a dowry through marriage to one of the daughters from the Rauzan family.

Jean Desmirail renamed the chateau, taking his own name and using it for the moniker. At the time, Chateau Desmirail was still a part of the massive array Rauzan Bordeaux wine properties. These were owned by Pierre de Mesures de Rauzan. Skipping ahead to the next century, when it became time to organize the 1855 Classification, the massive Rauzan estate was broken into three completely unique Bordeaux wine chateaux.

The new properties were Chateau Rauzan Segla, Chateau Rauzan Gassies and Chateau Desmirail. And don’t forget Chateau Marquis de Terme was also a part of the Rauzan Segla estate as well!

Today, Chateau Desmirail is owned and managed by the well-known Lurton family who own a myriad of other Bordeaux properties in almost every Bordeaux appellation.

The 30 hectare, Left Bank Bordeaux wine vineyard of Chateau Desmirail is planted with 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 39% Merlot and 1% Cabernet Franc. On average, the vines are 20 years of age. The vineyard is planted to a vine density of 6,666 vines per hectare. The terroir consists of deep gravel, sand and clay soils. Fermentation takes place in large vats. Malolactic fermentation takes place in vat. The wine of Chateau Desmirail is aged in 40% new oak for between 12 to 18 months.
