Château Durfort Vivens Margaux 2009
|Region||France, Bordeaux, Margaux|
|Brand||Château Durfort Vivens|
The 2009 Château Durfort-Vivens is remarkable for its very intense, almost seductive expression of aromas. The bouquet offers an elegant combination of floral notes (violets), spices (pepper, cinnamon, liquorice and vanilla), red fruit (blackberries, blackcurrants and raspberries) and minerals. On the palate, there is a balance between richness, smoothness, freshness and power that verges on perfection. This wine is voluptuous, smooth, fruity, finely textured, full-bodied and very long. There can be no doubt that this is an exceptional vintage that is already very generous on the palate, and shows excellent potential to improve further over time.
Ripely juicy, a wine that feels fresh as much as rich. It shows extreme berry juice as well as acidity. But there is also some density.
Plump and forward, with a tasty core of dark plum, fig sauce and blackberry preserves rolled together and pushed from behind by apple wood and tobacco notes. A flash of bittersweet cocoa adds length on the finish. Drink now through 2022.
Delicious notes of black olives, unsmoked cigar tobacco, black currants and black cherries jump from the glass of this plump, aromatic, silky, medium to full-bodied Margaux. One of the finest Durfort Vivens yet produced, it is filled with purity and elegance. Enjoy it over the next 15-20 years.
