Product Details

Code: WCHK75

Château Kirwan is a producer located in Margaux, in the southern Medoc, some 30km (18 miles) north of Bordeaux town center. The estate was classified as a Third Growth in the 1855 Classification of Bordeaux wines. Château Kirwan is situated on 40 hectares (100 acres). The property sits on something of a rise 20 meters higher than the rest of the plateau at its highest point. Cabernet Sauvignon is the dominant variety grown here, thriving on the gravelly soils of the area, while Merlot enjoys more clay-based soils on another part of the property. Some Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot are grown as well. Château Kirwan believes in minimally invasive techniques in the wine cellar, calling winemakers "wine helpers" instead. The wine is aged for 20 months in 40 percent new French oak, allowing the quality of the fruit and soil structure to shine. Often described as elegant, silky, and firmly structured, it is considered a classic example of Margaux.

Kirwan is a big, powerful Margaux that should age for 20+ years, this inky purple-colored wine exhibits notes of spring flowers intermixed with blackberries, raspberries and cassis. Some lead pencil shavings and toasty oak are also present in this powerful yet at the same time very pure, textured, full-throttle Kirwan.
