Château Durfort-Vivens

Château Durfort-Vivens

Grand Cru Classé
Margaux
1855 classification
Though the striking château greets you arriving at the estate in Margaux, it’s what’s happening under the vines that gets winemaker Gonzague Lurton out of bed each morning. A third-generation winemaker, Gonzague is a pioneer of organic and biodynamic farming and is always in search of new ways to encourage microbiological life in his soil.

Meet the Winemaker

Gonzague took over Château Durfort-Vivens after studying business and views his winemaking as a way for this historic property to reveal its true soul. He cultivates his vineyards with reverence for nature and the traditions he inherited.
In the Vineyard & Cellar

Château Durfort-Vivens is located in Margaux where deep gravel, sand and clay soil are known to grow highly concentrated fruit. The mild air of the Atlantic Ocean and Gironde, along with shelter from the surrounding Landes forest, provide a temperate climate. Each plot is vinified separately and fermented in wooden and concrete vats. Aging then occurs for an average of 18 months in fine-grain French oak.
