Ch Kirwan Margaux 2009
Editorial Reviews for Ch Kirwan Margaux
Roses and raw wood on the nose with underlying notes of red fruit, porcini, and spice – rather soft up front, silky across the mid-palate, nice earthy/forest floor toned fruit, a bit raw, some nice oystershell mineral tones, rather well balanced with good length and a nice layered finish, savory and fruity (89-90)
Earthy and leathery on the nose with an evolving gentle funky tone this offers up sweet oak that is balanced by the very floral Margaux character. Elegant in the mouth and showing great integration at this stage with a midpalate dominated by red currant fruit, soft acidity and sleek tannins. Finishes with a vanillin tinged red berry note of medium length. This has everything that makes for a good 1999, a vintage I am partial to. It is balanced if a touch soft showing admirable restraint allowing for a layered, nuanced character. Just entering it's peak drinking window 2008-2016
Leichter vegetal geschmack in der nase. sauer, kein holz. nichts für mich.
Four and a half glasses
Smoke and tobacco nose. Smooth with fresh fruit and space. Layered. Cherries, stewed fruit. Very good with a beautiful finish. Almost a 4.
fantastic wine! bold and smooth at the same time, also great just by itself
Certainly stops you in your tracks when you taste this! Good deep velvet colour. Definate redcurrent nose confirmed by strong flavour on tasting. Leaves a nice soft coating on palette. Have been spoilt by this being my first decent Margaux experience. Have already purchased more.

A balanced wine with blueberry and berry character a medium body and a delicate finish. Fine tannins. James Suckling.
The Kirwan 2013 has a reticent nose at first light gravel-tinged black fruit that have a slight Pauillac allure
Plenty of dark berries and fresh ceps on the nose and palate. Full to medium body with polished tannins and an attractive finish. Well-done. Reserved style of Kirwan. James Suckling. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2011 Kirwan 6000ml
Tasted blind at the Southwold Bordeaux 2010 tasting. The Kirwan 2010 has a very attractive marine-influenced bouquet with touches of seaweed and iodine infusing the clean and pure fresh black fruit. The oak is neatly folded in here. The palate is medium-bodied with impressive cohesion on the entry. This is well balanced with more body and structure than its peers with plenty of dusky black fruit to give it persistency. Very fine. Tasted January 2014. Neal Martins Wine Journal.
Blackish crimson. Intense blend of very ripe fruit and some tobacco savour. Racy green finish - a bit angular - but lots of pleasure too. Edgy for the moment. Not the densest but with real verve. Jancis Robinson.
A blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon 35% merlot 9% Cabernet Franc and 6% Petit Verdot including 13% vin de presse and being raised in 45% new oak (13.9% alcohol) the Kirwan 10 has a very ripe bouquet with blackcurrant blueberry plum and cedar. The palate is medium-bodied with ripe tannins quite robust on the entry very good weight but mellowing nicely towards the creamy textured finish. This is a very fine modern style Margaux one that is very well crafted. Neal Martins Wine Journal.
2010: Readers looking for a masculine, powerful, concentrated, broodingly backward style of Margaux need look no further than the 2010 Kirwan. A dense opaque purple color is accompanied by notes of graphite, licorice, blackberry and cassis. Intense a... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.
