Vintage Château Durfort-Vivens 2016


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.

Elegant but also intense, complex and layered. Extremely clear liquorice and black spices, with waves of soft floral, rose and violet, notes alongside a wild cocktail of aromas including leather, tobacco, smoke and liquorice. The core of the wine is still delicious dark Cabernet fruit flavours. Real lift and freshness across this wine make it in our words “racy and distinctive”.
