Château Durfort Vivens Margaux 2005
|Region||France, Bordeaux, Margaux|
|Brand||Château Durfort Vivens|
Delivers blackberry, licorice and dark chocolate character on the nose. Full and rich, with velvety tannins and a long finish. Smoky, decadent and wonderful. The best wine from this estate in a long, long time. Best after 2013. 8,330 cases made.
Gonzague Lurton, current president of the Margaux producers, has invested considerably in pushing this estate forward. The wine has rich, open, generous fruit, with soft but firmly present tannins and juicy flavors. Combined with a subtle used of new wood, this shows well, and will develop well over many years.
