    The richness and concentration of a Margaux Grand Cru Classé

    2018 will be remembered at Château Kirwan, a magnificent Grand Cru Classé located in the prestigious Margaux appellation, on the left bank of Bordeaux.

    After torrential rain in the spring, which brought storms, hail and mildew, the summer finally came in the month of July. The summer was the warmest recorded since 2003. The dry and hot months created the perfect hydric stress in the vineyard and allowed for a slow ripening and an intense concentration of the fruit, which was smaller than usual, with much lower yields.

    By the time of the harvest, the quality of the grapes was exceptional. The harvest took place between September 19th and October 10th, following an extremely thorough selection that kept only the highest quality fruit. The great 2018 vintage rewarded the work and attention paid by the technical teams of Château Kirwan. The fruits displayed a magnificently fruity aromatic expression, a great richness in anthocyanins, high degrees of alcohol and powerful tannins.

    The quality of the grape harvest was such that vinification took place with the least possible intervention, with only a few pump-overs and gentle extraction.

    Blending Cabernet Sauvignon (43%), Merlot (29%, Cabernet Franc (15%) and Petit Verdot (13%), the Château Kirwan 2018 presents a magnificent, exuberant personality in a wine of great richness, while maintaining a perfect balance: a wonderful Margaux offering great promise for the future.

    Wine Advocate-Parker :
    The 2018 Kirwan is deep garnet-purple in color and gives intense, lifted scents of kirsch, black raspberries and warm cassis with nuances of rose hip tea, tar, fragrant earth and wild sage. The full-bodied palate delivers a great intensity of vibrant fruit with loads of earthy nuances and a firm, fine-grained frame, finishing long and perfumed.
