The nose delivers intense notes of ripe fruit, supplemented by fine notes of spices. In the mouth, it is impressive, mellow and smooth, with signs of great maturity. It has a sturdy tannic structure, which will soften with age. The freshness and the tannic structure give more length to the fleshy frame. This wine is certainly young and has considerable aging potential.

Chateau Kirwan is located on the plateau of Cantenac with some of the finest gravelly soil in the Médoc. Kirwan is exquisitely elegant, well-structured and typical of the very finest in the Margaux appellation.
The vines are thinned out in order to encourage maximum concentration and ripeness in the grapes. These are hand-picked and carefully sorted before being crushed. The wine is fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel vats and then aged in oak barrels (35% of which are renewed every year) for 18 months.
Chateau Kirwan takes its name from the Irishman, Mark Kirwan, who owned the estate in the mid 18th century. The Schyler family has owned Kirwan since 1925.
