Château Deyrem Valentin 2010 Red (Margaux)
Located north of Margaux village, Deyrem Valentin is a small, family-owned property of 32 acres that represents one of the values of Margaux. This wine is smooth, polished and concentrated, with flavors of wood and a sweet-tasting blackberry. The acidity and tannins demonstrate a fine balancing act. This shows good aging potential.
Château Deyrem Valentin 2006 Red (Margaux)
In the northern Margaux village of Soussans, Deyrem-Valentin produces a delicate wine, with simply structured blackberry jelly flavors, just edged with dark tannins. The flavors are sweet, ripe, open, not for aging.
Château Deyrem Valentin 2001 Red (Margaux)
This Soussans estate has produced a well-structured 2001, filled with black fruit, underscored by tannins. It has flavors of spice, some herbs and dark, dry tastes. The layers of wood are there, but do not dominate.
Château Deyrem Valentin 2007 Red (Margaux)
Quite a lean wine, austerely tannic. The wood element is prominent and lends an extra dryness to the wine. It is, finally, hard-edged, with the acidity somewhat bitter.
