About this Item

Margaux, 2005
2 (1 x 2) 750ml

Château Durfort-Vivens is a Bordeaux wine estate in the Margaux appellation, ranked as a second growth in the official 1855 Classification. The wine is based on Cabernet Sauvignon with some Merlot and Cabernet Franc, but the exact blend can change depending on the vintage. Since 1961, the estate has been owned by the Lurton family.

Critics Ratings

‘Delivers blackberry, licorice and dark chocolate character on the nose. Full and rich, with velvety tannins and a long finish. Smoky, decadent and wonderful. The best wine from this estate in a long, long time.’ – James Suckling, Wine Spectator, 92/100 (Mar 2008)

‘Tasted blind. Blackish ruby. Rather opulent and satisfying on the nose and alluring on the palate. Some freshness. Slightly bitter finish. But really good start.’ – Jancis Robinson, JancisRobinson.com, 16/20 (Feb 2017)
