Vivens Margaux 2013
Bright garnet colour with glints of violet.
Intense nose, harmoniously combining notes of red fruit (strawberry, cherry) with scents of white flowers and pepper. After aeration, the bouquet gains further intensity and complexity with the development of notes of cigar leaves, mineral notes and black fruit (blueberry), underscored by a very gentle hint of maple syrup.
On the palate, the attack is clean and fresh; the structure shows good balance supported by silky tannins. Overall, there is an elegant freshness and great finesse. The finish is long, with well-integrated notes of red fruit.
Aged in 20% new oak barrels for 18 months.
It will go very well with delicate dishes such as poultry and fish, or even strawberries.
