Vintage Château Durfort-Vivens 2001


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.

2001 is in perfect drinking window now it’s 20+ years old. The wine has a nose of baked cherry pie and ripe plums. In the mouth, the wine is juicy and harmonious! Complete and succulent! Less Cabernet Franc in this vintage results in a supple Margaux that ages in a complex Cab Sauvignon way.
