Club des Sommeliers Margaux 2007 par Château Durfort-Vivens

This is a bit of a curio that found its way to here, I think, via a French supermarket.  Labelled under a French label of "Club des Sommeliers" it's a Margaux seemingly produced by Château Durfort-Vivens.  A combination then: part cleanskin, part branded wine.  It proves quite good drinking a decade later.  Cigar box, blackcurrants and good length.  It trailed off slightly on a second glass.  (Region: Margaux, Bordeaux, France, Rating: Good, Drink: now to 2019, Price: not obvious, Tasted: October, 2017)
