A blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc from proprietor Gonzague Lurton, the 2011 Durfort Vivens is superficial, soft and round with a green, herbaceous streak running through the aromatics, mid-palate and finish. If this was an accurate tasting of this cuvee, it is certainly not one of the better classified growths of the vintage. Wine Advocate.April, 2012

The Durfort-Vivens ‘11 has a slightly hard, gravely nose with a touch of greenness, though not as much as one might have expected. The palate is medium-bodied with slightly coarse tannins on the entry, but I appreciate the overall balance of this wine, very classic and slightly leafy in style, but fresh, minerally and drinkable. Tasted April 2012. Neal Martin, eRobertParker.com

A little reductive but some good fruit underneath. Full and chewy. Hard to taste now. James Suckling, jamessuckling.com

Light and friendly, with soft-edged plum, tea and incense notes that linger gently through the finish. James Molesworth, WineSpectator.com

Deep dark black cherry. Fragrant, cedary on the nose and palate. Just ripe enough and that herbaceousness adds freshness. Tannins a bit drying on the finish. Perhaps it needs to be just a bit riper on the finish? Julia Harding MW, jancisrobinson.com

Wild violets and cassis nose, very attractive taffeta texture and elegant future. Drink 2015-2025. Decanter.com
