Chateau Kirwan 2012
€ 51,97 (incl. Vat)
From the Schroder and Schyler family, the 2012 Kirwan is dense ruby/purple and exhibits notes of cassis, licorice and a touch of toasty oak, followed by a medium to full-bodied, concentrated, tightly knit, but very promising Margaux. Concentrated, long and rich, this wine is still playing it close to the vest. It should be at its best in another 5-7 years and last at least two decades.
Light menthol and bay hints line the core of supple plum and blackberry coulis flavors, while touches of warm cocoa and roasted vanilla line the rounded finish. A little less dynamic than when tasted from barrel.
