Château Kirwan Grand Cru Classé Margaux 2006

Quick Overview

The 2006 vintage demanded all the skill of both vigneron and winemaker. It offers fresh red and black fruit aromas and great finesse. The fruit and oak have begun to integrate well, and there are firm, perfectly ripe tannins with a long, elegant and fresh finish—typical of the vintage

Further Details

A 'Coup de Coeur' in the 2010 Hachette guide—the leading French wine annual—this is a wine that ‘can be compared to 1999 for its juicy fruit, and to 2002 for its vitality…definitely a nice representation of the Margaux appellation’.

This is all the more true now that a few years have passed and the wine has settled into the bouquet and power of maturity.

‘There’s lovely fruit in this wine, with berry, chocolate and plum aromas and flavors. Medium- to full-bodied, with silky tannins and a long finish. A very balanced Kirwan. Best from 2011 through 2016. .’

90/100 James Suckling, Wine Spectator, February 2009

‘Tight, yet intense. Expands in the mouth. Big, ripe, yet complex, with lots of extract and character and definition. Quite shy. Drink from 2015.’

★★★ Decanter, October 2009

‘Le temps lui fait le plus grand bien. En primeur, le vin se présentait à son désavantage, sur la prise de bois. La première dégustation en bouteille révélait toute l’élégance du cru. Un an après, le vin a gagné en complexité et en corpulence avec un boisé qui se montre plus élégant encore. C’est un beau vin long et généreux, très stylisé’

17/20 Olivier Poels, La Revue du vin de France, September 2009
