The Château Kirwan Margaux has a fresh ruby red color with a few shades. Enchanting aromas of red and black currants emerge on the nose, enhanced by spicy undertones. The bouquet stands out for its fresh and pure character. In the mouth, the attack is fresh, with a pleasant acidity that gives off a hint of menthol. The wine gradually intensifies as the palate reveals the fruity aromas, the tannins and the distinctive personality formed by aging. The palate is equally dynamic and soft, carried by beautiful and well-aged tannins.

About Chateau Kirwan

The name Kirwan is Irish and comes from Mark Kirwan, who lived in Bordeaux at the time. In 1760 he became the owner of the Château. Château Kirwan has belonged since 1925 to the Schÿler family, also négociants in Bordeaux. The 37ha vineyard is divided into two parts, 2/3 is a ridge of stones around the castle in Cantenac, where the cabernet is planted. 1/3 contains more clay west of the appellation, where the merlot is planted. Two wines are made at the Château: Chateau Kirwan and Les Charmes de Kirwan, from younger vines. The vines are on average 27 years old. Kirwan presents his wines as 'feminine' and complex.
