Château Kirwan

This is the first vintage produced at the new winery that has been installed with the same tanks as those designed for Château Cheval Blanc. The fermentation is cool at a maximum 25°C in order to contain the extraction and showpiece the classic Margaux characters. There is 40% new oak. The bouquet displays very alluring clean berry aromas, the palate is vibrant and brimming with cassis, balanced by a very feminine freshness. A wine that possesses great opulence, this is a very good vintage for Kirwan.

Tasting Notes

The colour is dark and opaque, the nose both forward and intensely rich, offering warmly baked black fruits, a hint of minerality and a lush, succulent quality, balanced throughout and utterly decadent - the obvious spice and oak all integrate with layers of kirsch and sweet oak. Long, rounded, supple. Beautiful. A corker!
