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.
An impressive wine that reflects the superior quality of Margaux in 2015, the nose is bathed in ripe blackberries and ripe dark cherries. Very plush and suave palate. Effortless depth with fresh, cool dark berries that flow long into the finish. So much pleasure here. Try from 2021.
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)
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. (NM)
