Margaux, Le Relais de Durfort-Vivens
France – 2015
Tasting Note: A vintage in which we made fruit and finesse the priority. The nose, still a little buttery, expresses lovely notes of red fruit (redcurrants), dark fruit (blueberries), violets, and light tobacco. The palate is smooth and evolves with a fresh, refined texture. Very pleasant, fruity, full-bodied character. The finish is moderately long and elegant with notes of fresh fruit and vanilla. Serve with: grills, cured and prepared meats (charcuterie), fresh cheeses.
Food Matching: Serve with: grills, cured and prepared meats (charcuterie), fresh cheeses.
