    (Chateau Desmirail (Margaux)) This is 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Merlot. Quite a dark and concentrated wine, with a narrow rim of colour at the edge. It is all flashy and toasty oak on the nose, with roasted coffee, and a rather roasted fruit character too, although possibly some of this is the oak character bleeding across the fruit profile. The palate is supple, lightly polished, with firmer stone-edged fruit than I expected from the nose, with a very welcome bright acidity at the core. The tannins come in appropriately with a firm, slightly chewy character, perhaps unsurprising with that much Merlot. There are certainly some attractive elements here, although it does feel a bit tarted up.
