This went wonderfully with a fillet mignon nice red fruit with earthy undertones, relatively light bodied for an 05, elegance and decent freshness mouthfeel could see this easily continue to evolve for another 5 pr so years
I'm with Jeff Leve on this one, only I found it to be elegant and bountiful, very lively and structured, and immensely layered. The longer I enjoyed it the more I got out of it. Fantastic bottle. I don't know if 90 retail is worth it, but still an enjoyable experience.

(Chateau Durfort-Vivens Margaux) This wine is perhaps a little closed down on the nose, showing little in the way of fruit character on the day, although there is some honeyed oak apparent. It also seems a little spirity - I wonder what the alcohol content is? Nevertheless, it has a lovely presence on the palate, with a fresh redcurrant, cherry and cranberry style. The style is supple, soft, rounded, and overall it is quite nicely put together, although it misses the vigour present in some other wines.
