Reviews for 2010 Durfort Vivens Bordeaux Blend

WS 93
Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, April 2011
Sappy and intense with a tongue-coating feel to the crushed plum and cherry preserve notes. Long and silky through the finish with black tea and iron lurking.

(a blend of 70% cabernet sauvignon 26% merlot and 4% cabernet franc) Fully saturated purple-ruby. Very ripe complex aromas of black cherry plums macerated in alcohol crushed stone and coffee lifted by a violet topnote. Sweet lush and generous conveying a strong impression of dry extract; the rich flavors are similar to the aromas. The long finish is youthfully tannic and chewy. -Ian D'Agata

A chewy red with blackberry and blueberry character and polished tannins. Full with a solid core of fruit. Serious finish. Balanced and attractive.

Following decades of mediocrity this property has finally produced a wine worthy of reviewing. A blend of 72% Cabernet Sauvignon 22% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc the 2010 (13.9% alcohol) possesses a dark purple color as well as a sweet bouquet of spring flowers black currants blueberries and damp earth. Medium-bodied elegant and concentrated with more depth richness and texture than other recent vintages it will benefit from 6-8 years of cellaring and should drink well over the following two decades.

Durfort Vivens From an assemblage of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon 26% Merlot and 4% Cabernet Franc (Which is almost identical to the blend in 2009) this medium bodied soft cassis and red plum wine is elegantly styled and should drink well within a few years of release.
