A very focused red, showing blackberry, blueberry, and currant aromas, and flavors, together with bark. It’s full and layered with lots of fine tannins that give this wine a velvety texture. 97% cabernet sauvignon and 3% merlot. From biodynamically grown grapes with Demeter certification. ~94-95 James Suckling
The 2021 Durfort-Vivens offers a compelling mix of Cabernet aromatics and notable textural richness. There's tremendous weight, depth, and intensity here. Blueberry, lavender, sage, mint, and tobacco come together in this potent, deeply structured Cabernet. Inky red fruit, blood orange, mint, and exotic spice linger on the substantial-finish. Yields were 32 hectoliters per hectare, which is about to average, and certainly far better than other vintages where mildew has been a threat, most notably 2018. This is a strong showing from Gonzague Lurton. I should note that Lurton also made his new parcellaire wines, but those aren't shown or sold en primeur, hence their exclusion in this report. ~93-95 Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media
Containing fully 97% Cabernet Sauvignon this year, the 2021 Durfort Vivens shows considerable promise, unwinding in the glass with aromas of cassis, dark berries, loamy soil, cigar wrapper, and spices. Medium to full-bodied, deep, and layered, it's velvety and impressively concentrated, with powdery tannins, lively acids, and a long, penetrating finish. Tasted twice. ~92-94 WA
