2019 Chateau Kirwan Pre-Arrival Offer

Margaux, Bordeaux, FRANCE
$85. 99 Bottle
$1031.88 Dozen
Closure: Cork

Other Reviews....
The 2019 Kirwan is a bit rustic and rough around the edges; let's see if it comes together during élevage. Today the 2019 is disjointed and not terribly expressive, while also lacking the vibrance of its peers.

Antonio Galloni - Vinous

The 2019 Kirwan offers a quintessential Margaux bouquet with vivid black and blue fruit laced with crushed violets, a sensual and generous nose that will please many. The palate is medium-bodied with fleshy rounded tannins, one of the texturally creamiest within the Margaux appelation. I feel it just shaves away some tension and grip on the finish. This will be a thoroughly pleasurable Kirwan.

Lovely depth of fruit to this, and a line of tannins that draw through the wine. It’s medium-to full-bodied with polished structure. Focused and transparent. Better than the 2018.

Sporting a vivid purple color as well as pretty bouquet of both red and blue fruits, graphite, and flowery incense, the 2019 Château Kirwan is medium to full-bodied, has a beautiful sense of elegance, silky tannins, and a great finish. It's not a blockbuster, but it has terrific Margaux elegance and complexity. It will need 2-4 years of bottle age and keep for two decades or more.

Careful extraction of the sappy, and enjoyably structured, blackcurrant and blackberry fruits. This is a quality Kirwan that, as with last year, is a fairly serious take on the vintage within the appellation. An earthy, smoked cedar note comes out as the structure relaxes, and there is a lot to enjoy in this wine, which is certain to power through the decades. Blend completed with 6% Petit Verdot and for the first time 1% Carmanère.

Flowers and sweet cherries with licorice and coffee notes on the nose start off nicely. On the palate, the wine is soft, silky, medium-bodied and fresh with a fresh, juicy, dark cherry and cassis finish.
