Notes
The 2022 Kirwan bestows plenty of luscious fruit on the nose with blackberry, bilberry, cedar and crushed iris flower, unfolding nicely in the glass. There is a satisfying depth to these aromas. The palate is medium-bodied, lively and packed full of fruit, with saturated tannins and decent acidity. This is one of the more approachable Margaux wines this vintage, yet it has commendable freshness and structure. This Kirwan will give plenty of pleasure over 20-30 years. A second and third bottles were a little creamier on the finish.

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.
