Plump and forward, with a tasty core of dark plum, fig sauce and blackberry preserves rolled together and pushed from behind by apple wood and tobacco notes. A flash of bittersweet cocoa adds length on the finish. Drink now through 2022. Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2009 Durfort Vivens 750ml

Winemaker's Notes:

The history of Durfort-Vivens stretches back as far as the 12th century, when a property was first established here by the Durfort de Duras family. The 2009 Durfort Vivens is an attractive, soft, velvety-textured wine revealing a hint of tapenade intermixed with black currant and blackberry fruit.This is a bold wine with a touch of gentle warmth on the palate. The proportion of Cabernet Sauvignon in the final blend is the highest of any wine in the southern Médoc and gives the wine classic blackcurrant and cassis characteristics as well as notable tannins and structure. Durfort-Vivens may be approached after 5 years or so in bottle but will continue improving for up to 10 years.Medium-bodied and elegant with the silkiness and precision that make this vintage so alluring, it should drink well for 15-20 years.
