Medoc crus classes 2009
Château Durfort-Vivens, Margaux 2CC
Decanter average score: 17.5pts/20 (91/100pts)
Individual judge’s scores: SB 19 AG 16.5 SS 17
Charming bouquet with a hint of flowers and plums. Suave and very concentrated, but there’s enough acidity to give it drive – a combination of richness and Margaux elegance. Everything is in place.
Price £31–£32 Widely available at leading Bordeaux merchants
Judges: Steven Brook, Alun Griffiths MW and Steven Spurrier
