Guided tour

Tour and tasting at Château Desmirail

From 10€ / pers

3rd Grand Cru Classé of Margaux, Château Desmirail welcomes you after a presentation of the regional vineyard and the 1855 classification, for a visit to discover its history, its authentic Medoc vat room and its cellars, before ending with a tasting of 3 wines.

  • Vineyards & Discovery Label
  • Historical heritage: 19th century Medoc vat house
  • On the "Route des Châteaux" (D2), in Margaux appellation

Behind a majestic pink marble gate, embark on a journey through time and admire the charm of an elegant 18th century chartreuse and one of the last typical Médoc vat room from the late 19th century.

The visit begins with a presentation of the regional vineyards and the exceptional terroir of the Margaux appellation.

Then discover the long and beautiful history of this 3rd Grand Cru Classé in 1855, founded in 1741 by Jean-Baptiste Desmirail and owned currently by Denis Lurton.

In these authentic buildings, on the first floor, the visitor will be able to admire an exceptional framework and will no doubt be impressed by the aesthetics of a recent wooden vat room.

The visit will continue with the methods of vinification and ageing of the wine in barrels.

To finish this visit through the ages on a note of conviviality and sharing, we will finally offer you a tasting of three wines from the Château: our Margaux (Château Desmirail and Initial de Desmirail) and, depending on the season, our Haut-Médoc (Iris Pourpre de Desmirail) or our rosé de saignée (Rosé de Desmirail).

This seemed very good value. The team were extremely helpful and friendly, even taking my wife to find a cafe as she wasn't coming on the tour. The guide was well informed and welcomed questions. The tasting provided 3 generous glasses to try and was informative. I didn't try any other tours in the area, but as someone interested in wine, enjoyed thus one.
