Chateau Kirwan is located on the plateau of Cantenac with some of the finest gravelly soil in the Médoc. Kirwan is exquisitely elegant, well-structured and typical of the very finest in the Margaux appellation.

The vines are thinned out in order to encourage maximum concentration and ripeness in the grapes. These are hand-picked and carefully sorted before being crushed. The wine is fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel vats and then aged in oak barrels (35% of which are renewed every year) for 18 months.

Chateau Kirwan takes its name from the Irishman, Mark Kirwan, who owned the estate in the mid 18th century. The Schyler family has owned Kirwan since 1925.

Perfect Pairings

Since Bordeaux red blends are often quite structured and tannic, they pair best with hearty, flavorful, and fatty meat dishes. Any type of steak makes for a classic pairing. Equally welcome with these wines would be beef brisket, pot roast, braised lamb, or smoked duck.

Winemaker Notes

This Charmes de Kirwan is remarkable for its roundness and fleshy juice. The nose is incredible fruity, with lovely notes of blackcurrant and blackberry topped off by fine aromas of pepper. This wine shows exquisite freshness that is highlighted by a pleasant acidity that offers a perfect balance to the impression of roundness in the mouth. For the finale, the aromatic palate is complemented by a delicate and barely perceptible woodiness. This wine will offer freshness and indulgence for the next 10 years.

 

Blend:40 % Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot, 23 % Cabernet Franc, 12 % Petit Verdot
