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.

Tangy and elegant with lilac iron red currant and cherry notes all mingling together and carrying through the focused finish. Not big but pure lengthy and showing fine minerality. Drink now through 2025. -JM Wine Spectator.

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.

Winemaker's Notes:

"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 and concentrated with good acidity as well as a boatload of tannin, it should be forgotten for 7-10 years and drunk over the following three decades."*-Robert Parker Wine Advocate (90-93 points)**We will notify you on arrival Summer 2013*
