"Owned by the Sorge family and run by Christelle Sorge, this small estate is in Soussans, just to the north of Margaux. The rich, smoky character of the wine is full of potential. Fine tannins mingle with the black-currant fruit and dusty texture to give a wine that should be ready from 2024. -RV"

"Very attractive ripe cassis and dark-stone aromas with coal smoke, violets and a wealth of dark berries. The palate has a very plush, concentrated and polished feel and delivers a beautifully juicy finish. Try from 2022."

"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!"
"Deyrem Valentin is an old Bordeaux property, with an history that dates back to 1730. It is a rather small family owned property for the Margaux appellation with 13 hectares, located slightly north of the Margaux village and appellation. It has belonged to the Sorge family since 1928. Jean Sorge has been running the estate with help of his two daughters, especially Christelle who is now managing the estate. In short, this property is a small, focused, family operation, who in some vintages can eclipse far more exalted names." - Importer
