Vintage Château Durfort-Vivens 2014


Durfort-Vivens is an illustrious 2nd growth – right up there with Bordeaux’s best! It has a long, rich history and with the current steward of the property, Gonzague it was the first estate in Margaux to go fully organic and is now fully biodynamic, too. The estate now puts 20% of the wine in clay amphora to add layers of complexity outside of oak barrels and preserve fruit and freshness in their wines. We have been blown away by the value of this estate which lies immediately next door to the much more expensive Château Margaux.

2014 was put down as a lesser vintage for quite a while but in our opinion has really come of age now. It is certainly not a ripe fruit-forward year but still holds complexity in many other ways. The wine has an earthy nose, rustic brick-red fruit with a green peppercorn edge. Black fruits, cherry and blackberry evolve towards more subtle aromas of truffle as the bottle opens. Silky and elegant as expected from this estate.
