53 Ch Kirwan : glorious medium bodied rose colour obviously with browning at meniscus but still looking in super shape for a wine of this age. Classically cool crisp Bordeaux nose , the bouquet of rose, a hint of "terroir" (Brett) ; lively (!) entry, flavours of rose , bramble berry , lovely touch of fruit sweetness (!) long flavours dancing thanks to beautiful natural acidity. Classic Margaux commune. A beauty.

Probably a better wine that the bretty 2011 Kirwan I had difficulty drinking last week; hard to spend money on faulty wine #brett #badwinehygiene #freshwineisbetter

Hi Pete, yes, just the slightest "whiff " but nothing at all nasty of horsehair, angularity etc. really quite fine. Was a VG level bottle and it was under the then owners banner Schroder & schyler.

Margaux Red Bordeaux Blend 2010

Restrained bouquet. But elegant on the palate. Cassis, other black fruits, subtle spicy notes. Fine grained tannin. Medium acidity. Pleasant finish with a hint of cedar wood, smoke, anise, and nutmeg. Ready now. — 5 years ago

Margaux Red Bordeaux Blend 1981

Chateau Kirwan 1981. Smoky jalapeño kind of reminds of mescal. Lots decaying leaves and dirt, old leather, with a hint of oxidation on the nose. The tannins and acid held up quite well for 34 year old Bordeaux from a cooler vintage. — 7 years ago
