Château Durfort-Vivens owes its name to the Durfort de Duras, a powerful family in the south-west of France that came to Margaux in the 14th century. In 1824, the name of Vivens was added when Viscount Robert Labat de Vivens inherited the property.
This 55 hectare second growth, now owned and run by Gonzague Lurton, is one of the finest in Margaux. The grapes for Château Durfort-Vivens are vinified in a mixture of oak and concrete vats and aged for about 18 months in barriques. Gonzague converted 20% of his vineyards to biodynamic viticulture in 2009. Pleased with the results, he increased the area to 40% the following year and completed the conversion in 2013. The vineyards are fully certified from the 2016 vintage.
Château Durfort-Vivens is an exceptional wine combining smoothness and aromatic freshness. Rich and powerful on the nose, with a harmonious bouquet of black fruits, liquorice, violet and vanilla pod. These aromas carry through on to the palate, supported by mineral freshness and a nice persistence on the finish.
