The Chateau Kirwan 2015 is a rich, deep color that immediately announces the tone of the vintage. It appears as a highly concentrated wine. The rich, complex nose confirms this impression, with a blend of black fruit and spices such as black pepper, cinnamon and vanilla.In the mouth, the attack is at once fresh and profuse. The sense of volume continues mid-palate while velvety tannins gradually develop, giving the wine its body without ever becoming overbearing. Everything is in perfect balance. A few notes of cocoa and coffee complement he broad aromatic palette right up to the prolonged finale, supported by extremely mature tannins.While the pleasure it procures may tempt some to drink it young, I suggest waiting a few years. Indeed, everything indicates long and propitious aging.
The 2015 Chateau Kirwan is a success regarding its balance, thus it is a beautiful vintage wine. This Margaux is 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc and 5% Petit Verdot. The alcohol is imperceptible, perfectly balanced by a refreshing acidity and a measured tannin content which brings a velvety thickness. The whole is wonderfully fruity, refined and scrumptious. Thick but smoother in taste, the 2015 Chateau Kirwan is a real hallmark of the Margaux appellation.
