Chateau Kirwan, 3eme Grand Cru Classé Margaux, Bordeaux, France, 2016

Grapes: 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 33% Merlot, 7% Cabernet-franc, 5% Petit Verdot from mostly gravel soils (some clay). Yield 50hl/ha.

Situated on the Cantenac Plateau, overlooking the Garonne River, the terroir of Kirwan displays its uniqueness as the pride of the Margaux appellation.

The richness and personality of a soil created over more than two million years by the accumulation of Pyrenean gravel, together with the climate and the flora, make up the precious DNA of the estate. Over time, mankind has learned to develop and communicate knowledge, discovering ways to innovate so as to better express the originality and authenticity of the Château Kirwan terroir.

The 2016 vintage, bottled in late May, displays a superb dark ruby, almost garnet red colour.
An intense bouquet of black fruit stands out in the nose, along with notes of cinnamon and mild pepper. In the mouth, the attack is at once full and fresh, promptly giving way to rich and lengthy volume. The smooth, juicy flesh coats the palate while fine notes of cocoa round out the aromatic blend. Delightfully grained tannins combine with distinct freshness and a lovely length. The wine offers a perceptible yet discrete concentration, illustrating the full grandeur of the Château Kirwan terroir. Superb potential for this 2016 vintage!

"Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, the 2016 Kirwan is scented of red plums, cassis, redcurrants, earth and cigar box. The palate is medium-bodied, lean, chewy and lively with an earthy finish." 90/100 points, Lisa Perroti-Brown, Wine Advocate, Nov 2018.
