There are places where wine is the lifeblood. The Château Deyrem-Valentin in Margaux is such a place. The home of great vintages classed as “Grands crus”, this estate dates back to 1730. Just like his great grandfather, his grandfather and his father, the current owner Jean Sorge carries on the tradition in total intimacy with Sylvie and Christelle, his two daughters. With the terroir, the vines and the storehouse, they combine tradition and innovation to offer the very best quality to lovers of wine of the Margaux variety.
The 2016 Deyrem Valentin has a ripe and generous bouquet that calms down in the glass, revealing attractive cranberry and blackcurrant fruit laced with pressed violets and iris. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, lovely pure-black fruit with just a hint of graphite. What I love about this Margaux (one of my favorites incidentally) is the disarming precision on the finish. It is simply a beautiful wine whose silky texture will seduce from 100 yards!
