A wine with wet earth, herbs and currants. Chocolate and blueberries too. Medium to full body, firm tannins and a fresh finish. A bit hard now so give it two or three years to soften. Feb 2015, www.jamessuckling.com
Purple-ruby; this is the darkest Durfort-Vivens I can recall. Blackcurrant, mocha, graphite, smoke and herbs on the complex, showy nose, nicely complemented by mellower oak tones. Then surprisingly round, lush and sweet for Durfort-Vivens, with sweet, spicy flavors of dark plum, cassis and mocha. Tightens up slightly with air, finishing with polished tannins and impressive length. This is an almost opulent wine for this chateau and a remarkable success for the vintage. I was not the only critic pleasantly surprised by Gonzague Lurton's wine this year. May 2013, www.vinous.com
Tasted blind at the Southwold 2012 tasting, the 2012 Durfort-Vivens felt rather disjointed, muddled on the nose. There is a decent level of fruit, though I was seeking more terroir expression, more Margaux-like floral scents. The palate is medium-bodied with a distinctly green opening, and thereafter it feels rather hollow with an attenuated finish. My final words before its identity was revealed were "Durfort-Vivens." Despite my disparaging remarks, I will still return to re-taste this after five or six years, as their wines can improve and shed that initial greenness. We will see.
