Château Durfort-Vivens 2ème Cru Classé, Margaux

Château Durfort-Vivens 2ème Cru Classé, Margaux

The Durfort property dates back to the 12th century having been owned by the influential Durfort de Duras family for seven centuries; after the French revolution, Vivens was added to the name by the new owner; in 1961 it was purchased by Château Margaux, which was controlled by the Lurton family. The blend is 75% Cabernet, 22% Merlot and 3% Cabenet Franc: it shows violets, freshness and mineral notes on the nose; the palate is soft, though underneath there is a lean acidity and grippy tannins – appealing old-school Margaux.
