Chateau Kirwan 2017 Margaux

"A full wine, this comes from an estate at the top of its form. The balance between tannins and blackberry fruits is just right, offering density and richness. The wine will be ready from 2024." 95 points, #65 Top 100 Cellar Selections of 2020, Wine Enthusiast

"This shows fantastic depth and fruit quality for the vintage with crushed currants, raspberries and flowers to the medium to full body, round and ripe tannins and flavorful finish. Good tension and poise." 93 points, James Suckling

"The 2017 Château Kirwan is another charming, high quality Margaux. Possessing terrific purity in its blue fruits, charcoal, graphite, and obvious minerality, it hits the palate with medium-bodied richness, a fresh, vibrant texture, and a ripe, yet present tannin. Given its purity of fruit and overall charm, it should be drinkable with 2-3 years of bottle age and cruise for 15 years or more." 92 points, Jeb Dunnuck

"Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2017 Kirwan has a warm blackberries and black raspberries nose with hints of kirsch, roses and sandalwood. The palate is medium-bodied with plush tannins and plenty of freshness supporting the elegant fruit, finishing perfumed and very pretty." 92 points, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

"This is well extracted, with dark berry fruits, attractive tobacco leaf and charcoal notes. It has that same savoury frame that so many from Margaux have this year, and the fruit character is not bursting with generosity but is still expressive and lyrical. It really does offer something for those looking for a more sculpted wine. Medium term drinking." 91 points, Decanter
