Chateau Kirwan – Margaux 2000
This great wine is made for cellaring. It is slowly following its evolutionary path. It oscillates between periods of closure and openness during which one discovers a vast aromatic palette filled with a mix of black fruits, the scents of woody underbrush, and hints of minerals. The tannins have a strong presence and the acidity provokes a fresh finish in the mouth. Its anticipated maturity is without a doubt in 15 to 25 years.

Remarquable property surrounded by 39 hectares of vines, Chateau Kirwan is situated in the Medoc, in Cantenac, which is 45 minutes away from Bordeaux. 3rd classified growth – Appellation Margaux – the property, which was named after an Irish owner in the 18th century, has belonged to the Schyler family since 1925. The chateau, a sober but refined architecture, witness to the French nobility’s art of living prior to the French revolution, is surrounded by a beautiful park of 2 hectares.
Chateau Kirwan is a wine that is produced from the best parcels of the vineyard that have mainly gravel soils, but some are also clay. The fruit is picked and sorted twice by hand, then vinified in separate batches corresponding to individual vineyard parcels. Half the oak barrels used to age the wine for eighteen months are renewed every year.
