Chateau Deyrem Valentin Margaux 2011


We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.

Situated between the villages of Soussans and Margaux, near where the Gironde becomes the Garonne, Château Deyrem-Valentin boasts plantings of naturally farmed very old vines of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot. All organically-farmed estate fruit on Riparia rootstock on double Guyot vines with six buds for low yields. Fruit is diligently harvested by hand, undergoing yet another triage in the winery before a lenghthy cold maceration and cold fermentation in Christelle's classic large cement squares. The wine is then moved to cask; one-third new and the balance in one and two year-old barrels for maturation. Très classique. Old-vine Margaux magic that drinks incredibly - the fruit is pure, fresh and filled with personality. Claret that reaches back in time.

Wine EnthusiastBarrel Sample. Soft tannins and a dense texture help to create a forward, fruity wine with a very juicy and spicy finish.

Wine SpectatorPretty lilac, red currant and bitter cherry notes mingle in this version, with a pebbly frame that carries the finish, revealing a pleasant iron echo. Drink now through 2016. 5,800 cases made.
