2015 Durfort Vivens

Average critic rating : 91.17 points



The 2015 Durfort Vivens has a predictably leafier and more herbaceous bouquet than its Margaux peers, though not unattractive with a slight steely edge. The palate is medium-bodied with quite firm, grainy tannin in the mouth. I appreciate the balance here and compared to recent vintages, there is clearly more fruit concentration on the finish, a pleasant salinity on the aftertaste. For those that prefer a leaner style of Claret, this comes recommended, and as I have seen in the past, it tends to put on weight by the time it is in bottle.

Very dark. Lifted, very wild sort of nose with lots going on there. Round and mentholated. Interesting wine! Apr 2016, www.JancisRobinson.com, Drink: 2023-2037



Very pure Margaux fruit showing classy Cabernet of beautiful length and balance. Always discreet at en primeur, this will have a very good future. Apr 2016, Steven Spurrier, www.Decanter.com, Drink: 2021-2035
