Tasting Notes

Vinous – 90/100

The 2014 Durfort-Vivens was the first vintage with 50mg of SO2. It offers brambly red fruit on the nose with raspberry, wilted rose petals and light pencil-shaving aromas. The palate is medium-bodied, ripe and fleshy, pliant in the mouth and nicely balanced with a gentle grip. It’s linear on the finish with a touch of sour cherry. This has fine precision on the finish, and it should drink well for the following ten years. Tasted at the château. [Neal Martin, 22/08/2023]

Robert Parker – 86

The 2014 Durfort Vivens has a backward, earthy, damp undergrowth-scented bouquet that one comes to expect from the estate. It has its own charm. The palate is medium-bodied with stringy tannin, rustic red fruit with a green edge that becomes more apparent towards the finish. Maybe I am missing something, but this just does not appeal as much as other Margaux 2014s tasted in bottle. [Neal Martin, 28/09/2017]

Anticipated maturity: 2019-2030

Mid crimson. Scented with plums, violets and vanilla – very charming. Lightish and gentle but with freshness and a lingering fragrance. Light but charming. Tannins are finely dry and in balance with the delicacy of the whole. (JH) [19/10/2016]

Anticipated maturity: 2019-2027
