Tasting Note

Ranked as a Second Cru Classé in the 1855 classification, the estate was bought by the company owning Chateau Margaux, whose main shareholder at that time was the Lurton family. in 1961 Lucien Lurton, a great lover and protector of wine-loving terroirs, acquired and restored this exceptional vineyard. In 1992 his son Gonzague inherited the property. He modernized its operation with a view to developing the terroir's unique qualities.

Aromas of redcurrants, blueberries, violets, and light tobacco. Smooth on the palate with fine tannins and a long finish.

Winemaker

Located in the communes of Margaux, Cantenac and Soussans, the Durfort-Vivens vines are planted on hilltops made up of deep, particularly poor gravel. The gravel was deposited by successive river-beds of the Garonne in the Quaternary period. This magnificent terroir enables an early optimal ripening of the Cabernet Sauvignon grapes, thereby allowing a full expression of the finesse and silkiness of the tannins, resulting in the freshness and elegance characteristic of a great Margaux. At Château Durfort-Vivens the constant search for a natural balance between the vines and the terroir is reflected in traditional growing techniques.

Winemaking

After very careful harvesting, the wines are selected according to the part of the vineyard they come from, in small volume vats housed in the new cellars. Matured for 20 months in oak barrels, 45% of which are new.

Press

  • 92/100 - This shows a wonderful depth of very ripe strawberry character, with lots of raspberries, too. Full body, velvety tannins and a fresh finish. This is very stylish for the vintage and shows a deft hand in winemaking.
