Chateau Durfort Vivens Margaux [Pre-arrival] 2018
JS96: Wonderful aromas of crushed berries, spices, dried flowers and grape puree. It’s full-bodied with a tight, rich palate with purity and honesty to the fruit. Wholesome and real. From biodynamically grown grapes with Demeter certification. Try after 2025.
VM96: The 2018 Durfort-Vivens is a total bomb. Inky, rich and explosive, the 2018 exudes concentration from the very first taste. Blackberry jam, spice, lavender, cloves and new leather infuse the 2018 with layers of depth. Durfort is without question one of the most compelling wines of the vintage. The blend is 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Merlot and 7% Cabernet Franc
