Description

Characteristics and tasting tips of Château Durfort-Vivens 2023

Tasting

Combining power with a beautiful tannic structure, this vintage seduces with its floral aromas and its minerality stretching to a suave finish.

A lively and aromatic Margaux red wine

The estate

The Château Durfort-Vivens gets its name partly from the Durfort de Duras family who settled in the Margaux appellation in the 14th century and partly from the Viscount Robert Labat de Vivens who in 1824 became, by inheritance, the owner of the estate to which he associated his name.

Acquired in 1937 by the owners of Château Margaux, one of the main shareholders of which was the Lurton family at the time, this Second Grand Cru Classé became the property of Lucien Lurton in 1961 and then in 1992 of his son, Gonzague Lurton.

Partly aged in amphora, the wines of Château Durfort-Vivens are recognized for their precision and elegance. The estate now holds the largest amphora cellar in the world by volume.

The vineyard

Château Durfort-Vivens is a Margaux wine from a 65-hectare vineyard planted on deep gravel soil with a sandy-clay subsoil. In 2016, Château Durfort-Vivens was the first of the Margaux Cru Classés to obtain Organic and Biodynamic Agriculture certifications. If the wines have been labelled "zero residues" since 2014, the estate has also been HVE and SME certified since 2019.

Vinification and ageing

Parcel vinification. Alcoholic fermentation with indigenous yeasts. Daily pumping over to promote gentle extractions. Maceration for 21 days. The ageing lasts 18 months in new barrels (70%) and in amphora (30%).

Blend

Cabernet Sauvignon (92%)
Merlot (8%).
