Château Kirwan 3ème Cru Classé 2014

Château Kirwan is a 3ème Cru Classé Margaux 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. This vintage blend is Cabernet Sauvignon (58%), Merlot (36%), Cabernet Franc (2%) and Petit Verdot (4%). The wine has a deep colour and so far, shows no trace of evolution. The nose is highly complex, a blend of fresh berries with delicate notes of vanilla and caramel. On the palate, its roundness and smooth body immediately impresses. The fruity and spicy flavours continue to develop with no harshness present. This wine is superbly balanced and clearly reflects its origins. The gentle elegance makes waiting a challenge but there is no doubt that this wine has everything it takes to age beautifully and for many years.
