The Chateau Kirwan 2010 comes out as an extremely complete wine: its freshness and aromatic purity bring an additional touch of brilliance to its velvety richness. Its superbly delicate nose, the savory balance it presents in the mouth and its intense finale all contribute to making this wine a perfect expression of the Kirwan terroir. In addition to the indulgent quality of its remarkable fruit, 2010 offers great aging potential.
This Margaux estate is enjoying a renaissance with full-flavored, muscular wines being produced. The finest Kirwan I have ever tasted, the 2000 is a full-bodied, multidimensional, rich, powerhouse exhibiting a black/purple color and a sweet, chewy, concentrated style with superb intensity, ripeness, and length. It should last for decades. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2025.
