Chateau Durfort Vivens - 2e Cru Classe Margaux 2009Splendidly Powerful
A deep crimson colour with hints of violet.
The nose is splendidly powerful, but once again, elegance prevails.
The aromas recall pickled plums, blackberries and elderberries, combined with a blend of vanilla and sweet spices and a dark chocolate finish.
The structure is very present and the wine shows great complexity, yet still needs a few more years to open up fully.
Magnificent length, minerality and freshness in the mouth. This vintage is definitely a match for the 2000.
