Château Durfort-Vivens Red Bordeaux Blend Margaux 2010

External Review by JJ Buckley Fine Wines:

Sappy and intense, with a tongue-coating feel to the crushed plum and cherry preserve notes. Long and silky through the finish, with black tea and iron lurking. Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2010 Durfort Vivens 750ml

Château Durfort-vivens:
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 fourteenth century. In 1824, the Viscount of Vivens’ name was added to that of Durfort.

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 fourteenth century. In 1824, the Viscount of Vivens’ name was added to that of Durfort. The estate was at the height of its fame: the 1844 vintage sold for more than any of the other Second Crus in the Margaux appellation. The quality of the Durfort wine began to be appreciated at the end of the eighteenth century. Thomas Jefferson, the American ambassador in France and future president, was a wine connoisseur and ranked it directly after Lafite, Latour and Margaux in his fascinating travel diaries. The 1855 classification confirmed his opinion, ranking the wine as a Second Cru Classé. In 1937 the estate was bought by the company owning Château Margaux, whose main shareholder at that time was the Lurton family. In 1961 Lucien Lurton, a great lover and protector of wine-producing terroirs, acquired and restored this exceptional vineyard. In 1992, his son Gonzague inherited the property. He modernized its operation with a view to developing the terroir’s unique qualities. Read less

(a blend of 70% cabernet sauvignon, 26% merlot and 4% cabernet franc) Fully saturated purple-ruby. Very ripe, complex aromas of black cherry, plums macerated in alcohol, crushed stone and coffee, lifted by a violet topnote. Sweet, lush and generous, ... Stephen Tanzers IWC.

A chewy red, with blackberry and blueberry character and polished tannins. Full, with a solid core of fruit. Serious finish. Balanced and attractive. James Suckling. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2010 Durfort Vivens 750ml
