Tasting Notes
Jancis Robinson: Very dark. Lifted, very wild sort of nose with lots going on there. Round and mentholated. Interesting wine! Drink 2023-2037 17.5
Ratings
Wine Advocate: The 2015 Durfort Vivens has a predictably leafier and more herbaceous bouquet than its Margaux peers, though not unattractive with a slight steely edge. The palate is medium-bodied with quite firm, grainy tannin in the mouth. I appreciate the balance here and compared to recent vintages, there is clearly more fruit concentration on the finish, a pleasant salinity on the aftertaste. For those that prefer a leaner style of Claret, this comes recommended, and as I have seen in the past, it tends to put on weight by the time it is in bottle. 89 - 91 Points
Awards
Wine Enthusiast: Barrel Sample. This is a seriously structured wine, although one with great fruit potential. It has a dense texture, dusty tannins and powerful fruits that will develop into a long-lasting wine. 94–96.
Vineyard Notes
For the 2013 harvest, the estate became 100% organically farmed. 2013 was the first year Durfort Vivens also moved to 100% Biodynamic farming methods. They will receive their certification for biodynamic and oorganic farming in 2016 from Ecocert and Biodyvin.
Production Notes
The 55 hectare Margaux vineyard of Durfort Vivens in Margaux has a terroir of gravel, clay and sand soil. The vines are planted to 70% Cabernet Sauvignon , 24% Merlot and 6% Cabernet Franc
