Winemaker Notes

Aging has been extremely positive for this vintage. The color has deepened and given way to more complex aromas. The bouquet combines black fruit with a variety of spices such as vanilla, liquorice and cinnamon. Here we discover the beautiful aromatic palette of the 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon. Yet the evolution is most striking in the mouth. The wine gained body and fleshiness. It fills the palate. Notes of deeply ripened black cherry mingle with cocoa and mocha. It has a smooth finish, coating the palate with velvety tannins. The wine unfolds like lush velour fabric. This very “tactile” wine engages all of our senses and promises fine sensations in the coming years.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
D 93
Decanter
This wine has really benefitted from bottle ageing. There's still a sense of reserve to the firm, dark fruits, but the attractive mid-palate fills out with smoky oak and cigar notes, plus a touch of rose petal as the wine opens up. Obvious quality here. 9% Petit Verdot completes the blend.
WE 92
Wine Enthusiast
This is a wine that is already delicious, with juicy black currant flavors and open acidity. There is structure and aging potential as well, however, giving this wine the best of both worlds. It finishes with a fine, fresh feel and a dry edge.
JS 90
James Suckling
This young red has a lot of polish, with firm, refined tannins and a berry, currant and mineral character. Full body, fresh acidity and a clean, fruity finish. Reserved and beautiful.
WS 90
Wine Spectator
Shows a lush edge for the vintage, with raspberry preserves, blackberry paste and dark currant notes melded together, framed with a smoldering charcoal hint that glides through the velvety finish. A suave, modern rendition. Best from 2016 through 2026.

Chateau Kirwan, France
Chateau Kirwan Winery Image
Chateau Kirwan is located on the plateau of Cantenac with some of the finest gravelly soil in the Médoc. Kirwan is exquisitely elegant, well-structured and typical of the very finest in the Margaux appellation.

The vines are thinned out in order to encourage maximum concentration and ripeness in the grapes. These are hand-picked and carefully sorted before being crushed. The wine is fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel vats and then aged in oak barrels (35% of which are renewed every year) for 18 months.

Chateau Kirwan takes its name from the Irishman, Mark Kirwan, who owned the estate in the mid 18th century. The Schyler family has owned Kirwan since 1925.
