Durfort-Vivens 1999 is an enchanting vintage with a bright colour of deep garnet with hints of crimson. The nose starts with notes of coffee beans and toast, filling out with a delicate spicy nuance of vanilla and cardamom. On aeration, intense aromas of fruit (blackcurrants and blackberries) dominate the sweet notes of tobacco leaves that complement this pleasant sensation.
Combining strength and finesse, this wine is particularly well-balanced in the mouth. The ripe tannins and silky structure underpin the expression of ripe fruit and sweet spices.
