Further Details

A big, powerful wine, with weighty, ripe blackcurrant fruit and chocolate depths. There is plenty of tannic structure in this one, making it a good candidate for further aging—though it is already drinking well, with lingering sweet fruit freshness and that firm, fine texture.

‘This is a wine that seduces you, with its crushed blackberries and hints of dark chocolate that follow through to a full body and ultra-fine tannins with a tangy, fresh finish. Solid as a rock. Best ever from here. Try in 2019.’

92/100 James Suckling, Wine Spectator, January 2012

‘A big, powerful Margaux that should age for 20+ years, this inky purple-colored wine exhibits notes of spring flowers intermixed with blackberries, raspberries and cassis. Some lead pencil shavings and toasty oak are also present in this powerful yet at the same time very pure, textured, full-throttle Kirwan. It needs about 5-7 years of cellaring and will be among the longest-lived wines of the vintage.’

92+/100 Robert Parker, eRobertParker.com, February 2012

‘Lovely perfume of violets. Rich and super-ripe, very concentrated and slightly extracted, but tannins are there to surround the exuberant fruit. Fleshy, persistent with a long finish. Drink 2015-2035’

17.5/20 Decanter, November 2012
