  Château Kirwan is a Third Growth wine produced in the Margaux department of Bordeaux, in Cantenac, France. The 18th century property was originally owned by nobleman Renard de la Salle, and was known then as La Terre Noble de la Salle. Sir John Collingwood of Great Britain turned the estate into a working winery. It was passed on to his son-in-law, Mark Kirwan, and the name stuck ever since. The wine has the distinction of being one of Thomas Jefferson’s favorites.    The winery suffered much the same fate as many in the difficult times surrounding the French Revolution, the Phylloxera blight and world wars, with periods of destruction, replanting and changing of hands. A total restructuring of the vineyard took place in the 1950s at the hands of Jean-Henri Schyler with whom it gained a significant brand resurgence. In the 1990s, under the guidance of Michel Rolland, the wine took on a more modern style of heavier fruit extraction and use of new oak, bringing higher commercial success. The winery is now managed by Schyler’s children Yann, Sophie and Natalie. Rolland left the winery in 2007 to pursue other projects.    The grapes are grown in the sandy, gravely soil of Cantenac with 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 10% Petit Verdot and the rest, Cabernet Franc.  Read less

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)

A solid, finely perfumed wine, the tannins giving concentration and structure... bitter chocolate character and tight texture that should age well.
