Margaux , Château Kirwan 2014, 3ème Cru Classé

£240.00

Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot
Château Kirwan
dates back to the time of the illustrious English merchant Sir John Collingwood, one of the first négociants, who bought the vineyard in 1751. One of his daughters married an Irish trader Mark Kirwan and the story began. The wine was a great favourite of the American President Thomas Jefferson during the 18th century and was officially recognised at the head of the famous Médoc Third Great Growth classification in 1855 by Napoleon III.
As a 3ème Cru Classé wine it receives all the tender care and attention to detail one would expect. A complex Bordeaux blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc and 5% Petit Verdot results in an experience that can only be Margaux. A favourite with those in the wine trade and regular high scorer with the major critics – Parker 92/100, Jancis 17/20, etc. this wine is both modern (can be drunk quite young) and classic (good ageing potential).
Intense red colour, crushed dark berries with an attack that is bold and vibrant. The mid-palate is both juicy and elegant with distinguished tannins and overall nicely balanced. Finely concentrated depth with length and intrigue – a Margaux classic. We regard Ch. Kirwan as one of those rare wines that are both affordable to drink and affordable for investment – possibly one of the reasons why many cases of Ch Kirwan 2014 reside in our personal cellars!
