Initially firm and dry, this wine blossoms quickly with its delicious fruit and penetrating acidity. Fine tannins sustain this black-currant and berry fruit along with the complex texture and structure. Produced from biodynamic grapes, the wine has great potential. Drink from 2026. *Cellar Selection* (RV)
This is the greatest wine ever made here. Incredible depth of fruit and power yet always polished and in reserve. Super depth of fruit. Layered. Amazing. Made from biodynamically-grown grapes.
Proof of the excellent work that has been done at Durfort Vivens over recent years. It has lashings of dark fruit that is clearly ripe, but they have held back on the throttle, offering a slice of classical Margaux for drinking over the next ten to 20 years. This is their third vintage in biodynamics. 40% of overall production in this wine. (JA)
Much deeper crimson than any wine tasted so far. This is the business on the nose! Lovely layers and complexity plus lusciousness. Really very gorgeous with fruit definitively trumping the hidden tannins. Subtle and making the most of Margaux's fragrance and gentle texture.
The 2015 Durfort Vivens was a little closed at first, although it soon awoke with scents of briary, damp earth and pencil lead. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, crisp and fresh with light black fruit laced with tobacco, although I would have liked more depth on the finish. Enjoy this biodynamically made Margaux over the next decade. (NM)
