    THE STORY: Chateau Durfort Vivens, like many Bordeaux wine producers is named after a previous owner. In this case, it was the Durfort de Duras, a well connected family from South West France. Several hundred years later, in 1824, Chateau Durfort took the second part of their name from the owner at the time, the Viscount of Vivens and became Chateau Durfort Vivens. In those days, the wines of Chateau Durfort Vivens were popular. In fact, the 1844 vintage was priced higher than every other Bordeaux wine in the appellation, except for Chateau Margaux of course.
