2020 Château Durfort-Vivens En Primeur

Owned by the much-admired Lurton family since 1961, Deuxième Grand Cru Classé estate Château Durfort-Vivens (£264 per six) was rated second only to Margaux itself in the 19th century.  Fully biodynamic since 2016 and with a new winery in 2018, the style has moved in a more concentrated direction over the last ten years, under Gonzague Lurton's direction.  Antonio Galloni calls the 2020 "an exotic, full-throttle wine...quite the powerhouse" (93-95 points).  With long ageing potential, the scores could well move upwards when the wine is bottled.
