Description:
Beautiful dark red colour with purple tints.

The nose is very expressive, with intense aromas of cassis and blackberries, which are also noticeable in the mid-palate.

Ample and round, the body is well structured with polished tannins and delicate layers of oak.

Smoke and slight spicy notes rise after further airing of the wine.

Stylish and balanced, the 2008 Vivens is a very refined and multi-nuanced Margaux.

Limited stock.

Producer Information

Located in the communes of Margaux, Cantenac and Soussans, the Durfort-Vivens vines are planted on hilltops made up of deep, poor gravel. The gravel was deposited by successive riverbeds of the Garonne in the Quaternary period. This magnificent terroir enables an early optimal ripening of the Cabernet Sauvignon grapes, allowing a full expression of the finesse and silkiness of the tannins, resulting in the freshness and elegance characteristic of a great Margaux. All vineyard work is done by hand at the beginning of the vegetative cycle. Pruning is adapted to the vigour of the vine, with the removal of excess buds, shoots and leaves. This brings richness, concentration and complexity to the grapes. Gonzague Lurton, head of the estate, introduced organic farming and the vineyards are in conversion to Biodynamic since 2009.
