The elegant 18th century manor house is located behind a majestic gate made of pink marble. The cellar features a vat room typical of those from the late 19th century Médoc.
From these buildings full of history, visitors can admire the magnificent roof structure resembling the upside-down hull of a ship and the attractive vat-room with new wooden vats.
Jean Desmirail gave his name to the château after marrying an heiress from the Rausan family in the late 17th century.
The current owner and manager, Denis Lurton, took over from his father, Lucien, in 1992. He has invested in modernising the estate on a regular basis ever since. Château Desmirail produces smooth, elegant wines in the classic Margaux style.
