From the producer: Château Kirwan is a wine that is produced from the best parcels of the vineyard that have mainly gravel soils, but some are also clay. The fruit is picked and sorted twice by hand, then vinified in separate batches corresponding to individual vineyard parcels. Half the oak barrels used to age the wine for eighteen months are renewed every year.
Blending: 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30 % Merlot, 10 % Cabernet-franc, 5 % Petit Verdot
The color is an intense garnet red. A bouquet of particularly delicate aromas immediately comes forth in the nose, strawberry, redcurrant and other red fruits mingling with notes of fresh pink peppercorns. The wine offers a fresh attack, the aromas continuing to develop, at once smooth, fresh and juicy. Fine tannins prolong the palate to a finale suffused with graceful notes of vanilla and toasted almonds. Subtly enchanting, this wine is an invitation to elegance. A true Margaux.
