Château Kirwan Margaux (Grand Cru Classé) 2011

Sommelier's Notes

Château Kirwan is produced in the appellation of Margaux. 


Covering an area of 40 hectares, the vineyard is located on a gravelly hillside in the Pyrenees.  


Aging has been extremely positive for this vintage. The color has deepened and given way to more complex aromas. The bouquet combines black fruit with a variety of spices such as vanilla, liquorice and cinnamon. Here we discover the beautiful aromatic palette of the 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon.


Yet the evolution is most striking in the mouth. The wine gained body and fleshiness. It fills the palate. Notes of deeply ripened black cherry mingle with cocoa and mocha.


It has a smooth finish, coating the palate with velvety tannins. The wine unfolds like lush velour fabric.


This very “tactile” wine engages all of our senses and promises fine sensations in the coming years.
