CHARACTERISTICS OF THE VINTAGE
Château Durfort-Vivens 2012 has a superb colour, deep ruby with garnet reflections. It is intense and complex on the nose, which delicately combines red fruits like Morello cherry and red currant with yellow plum, notes of white flowers (lilacs), spices (Cayenne pepper, liquorice), and a slight hint of tobacco and cigar box. The aromas from ageing are already remarkably well integrated with the softness of warm brioche. The elegant fragrance is supported by fresh mineral characters. The palate is a pure expression of the elegance and finesse of the greatest wines of Margaux. The attack is clean and fresh. The texture is finely crafted with silky and charming tannins that extend the finish harmoniously, with a wonderful mineral freshness in the tradition of the great terroirs of Margaux. This 2012 from Durfort-Vivens invites tasters to let themselves be carried away by its soft sensations of balance, harmony and finesse, offering them all the elegance and richness of its terroir.
