Reviews about Château Durfort-Vivens 2012
The 55 hectares of vineyards that have the distinction of being composed of several plots, micro-terroirs surrounded by the castle. Regarding varieties, there are 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc.
As in most of the vineyards where the respect for the land is paramount, the harvest is conducted manually and the wine making is fragmented and specifies for each lot to express its flavors and fragrances. Aging lasts on average 18 months in new oak barrels between 40 and 45% depending on the year, which explains their tannic and structured side.
