- 93-95 Punkte WINE ENTHUSIAST, Roger Voss: "Barrel Sample. Firmly tannic, but also rich in ripe black-fruit tones, this is going to be a fine wine as it develops. The pure berry flavors shine through the structure and acidity. Drink from 2024."
- 95 Punkte VINOUS, Antonio Galloni: "The 2017 Durfort-Vivens is fabulous, not to mention one of the under the radar gems of the year. Rich and explosive in feel, the 2017 possesses tremendous intensity in every direction. Sweet floral notes, cedar, mint and spice add shades of nuance as this potent, vertically built Margaux opens up in the glass. In 2017, severe frost took with it 35% of the production. The fruit that survived produced an epic, marvelously rich Durfort-Vivens. Don't miss it."
- 94 Punkte DECANTER, Jane Anson: "This is packed with black fruits, concentrated and hard to argue with. Great spice and coffee layers, tons of texture that builds to power and concentration, and you feel the tannins as a physical presence. Give it another five years, although doesn't need the full 10. Inky, really impressive, particularly for the vintage.10% aged in amphoras, 70% new oak, the rest one year in barrel. Drinking Window 2024 – 2038"
- 16,5 Punkte JANCIS ROBINSON: "Deep greyish crimson. Fragrant and leafy. Cassis leaf and graphite, cigar box. Light-bodied but succulent and harmonious. Elegant and persistent, with fine-grained tannins."
- 95 Punkte JAMES SUCKLING: "Aromas of redcurrants, flowers and cedar with an air of freshness. This has a very impressively composed and structured impression with attractive, raw appeal to the tannins and a core of mainly red-berry flavors. The acidity is vibrant. Very fresh and sustained flavors at the finish. Crushed cement and stone. From biodynamically grown grapes. Try from 2023."
