Two fine Claret
Chateau Durfort Vivens `Vivens` Margaux, Bordeaux 2012
Beautiful dark red colour with purple tints. The nose is very expressive, with intense aromas of cassis and blackberries, which are also noticeable in the mid-palate. Ample and round, the body is well structured with polished tannins and delicate layers of oak. Smoke and slight spicy notes rise after further airing of the wine. Stylish and balanced, the 2008 Vivens is a very refined and multi-nuanced Margaux. 86% Cabernet Sauvignon14% Merlot.
Chateau Grand-Puy Ducasse, Pauillac, Bordeaux 2012
Fine claret offering up plenty of crème de cassis, plum and typical cigar box. A nice mouthfeel, soft and rounded, opulent and textured, that builds incrementally. The purity of fruit of this 2012 vintage is admirable with a core of mineral iron amid deep cherry, plum, blackberry and cassis. 53% Cabernet Sauvignon, 47% Merlot. Wine Enthusiast 93 pts
