Chateau Kirwan 2004


Dark ruby, tight rim. Classic Cantenac and Brane. A masculine Margaux with power, concentration, density and richness. There are subtle floral elements, fruit freshness, 'rancio' balance, tones of cloves, tanned leather, liquorice, espresso bean and chocolate depth and vivid darkness. The tannins are tamed much by now, though certain rigidity is there.


Consistent scores, such as:


WE 93

Freshness is the hallmark of this wine. The fruit is dominant, ripe and balanced with blackberry acidity. There is a possible hint of over-extraction, but that is only a tiny failing in such a delicious wine.(Edited).
