Notes

This shows a very pronounced and rich combination of aromatic characters: ripe dark cherry fruit, with meaty mocha and coffee notes with white blossom overlaid; it is big and concentrated on the palate, with plenty of depth and some good oak structure. Impressive.

Château Kirwan

Château Kirwan

Château Kirwan is a 3ème Cru Classé Margaux estate that has been in the hands of the Schÿler family since 1739. Vinification is gentle, and is conducted differently according to each plot, with several slow macerations at medium temperature. Alcoholic and malolactic fermentation take place simultaneously to preserve the fruit and the wine’s aromatic purity. Final blending is performed in mid-February at the first extraction, after three months in barrels. Aging continues using four different kinds of wooden barrels, with manual extraction followed by fining with egg whites suited to the needs and characteristics of the wine. Bottling takes place 18 to 21 months later.
