Bordeaux Wine Tasting Dinner

Tuesday 4th June 2024

7:00 pm

We are looking forward to welcoming Gonzague Lurton of Chateau Durfort-Vivens to showcase some of Bordeaux’s finest wines alongside. These heavy-hitting fine wines have been expertly paired with a mouth-watering set menu designed by our established Chef Michal.

PRODUCER

Château Durfort-Vivens is a second-growth Margaux estate that owes part of its name to the Durfort de Duras, a powerful family in
southwest France that came to Margaux in the 14th century. In 1824, the name ‘Vivens’ was added when Viscount Robert Labat
de Vivens inherited the property. This 55-hectare estate, widely regarded as one of the finest in Margaux, is currently owned and
operated by Gonzague Lurton. Gonzague converted 20% of the vineyards to biodynamic viticulture in 2009. Pleased with the
results, he increased this area to 40% the following year before embarking on full conversion in 2013. As a result, the vineyards of
Château Durfort-Vivens have been fully certified both organic and biodynamic since the 2016 vintage.

VINEYARDS

Located in the communes of Margaux, Cantenac, Arsac and Soussans, the Durfort-Vivens vineyards are planted on hilltops
which sit on deep gravels. The gravel was deposited by successive riverbeds of the Garonne in the Quaternary period. This
magnificent terroir allows the grapes to reach full ripeness. All vineyard work is done by hand and pruning is adapted to the
vigour of the vine, with the removal of excess buds, shoots and leaves to control yields. This brings richness, concentration and
complexity to the wine.
