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.

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.
