Situated in in the heart of the Margaux appellation, wine has been made at Château Durfort-Vivens since the 17th century. This superb 2ème Grand Cru Classé domaine produces wonderful Left Bank Bordeaux reds from Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Cabernet Franc. In 1961, it was purchased by François Lurton, and is today managed by his son Gonzague. Laying on gravel, clay and sandy soils facing the Garonne River, the 62-ha old-vine vineyard is organically and biodynamically farmed (certified in 2016) - the first of the Crus Classés of Margaux to be certified as being both 100% organic and biodynamic. With an emphasis on low-intervention winemaking, the wines are vinified in a combination of wood and concrete temperature-controlled vats, and, since 2017, amphora. The domaine is notably renowned for being the largest amphora winery in the world by volume. Much of the Cabernet Sauvignon is aged in amphora, ranging in size from 320 to 750 liters. Beautifully structured, precise, and fruit-driven, these are wines of superb quality and among the most elegant in the Margaux appellation.
