2013 Chateau Durfort-Vivens Grand Cru Classe, Margaux
Country : France
Vintage : 2013
Region : Margaux
Located between the villages of Margaux, Cantenac and Soussans, the vineyard of Durfort-Vivens seats on the ridge of deep gravels. These gravels were brought by the Garonne river in the Quaternary era. This great terroir offers early maturity and allows the Cabernet Sauvignon to fully express finesse and silky tannins, a guarantee of freshness and elegance typical of the great Margaux, also in their second wine Vivens. At Château Durfort-Vivens the constant quest for a natural balance between the vineyard and its terroir is reflected by the use of traditional cultural practices.
Focused and light with lifted floral notes and round tannins. In this difficult vintage, Gonzague Lurton has done a very good job bringing to the surface lively fruit with soft extrwinehours.com. Tasted in: Bordeaux, France. Maturity: Young.
