K de Kirwan Margaux 2012Regular price €37.00
The little brother of Château Kirwan, made from the same remarkable terroir.
This is a more affordable chance to taste the famous Margaux of Château Kirwan. The K selection comes from younger vines in the same vineyards as the first wine of the château, and offers a softer texture than its costly sibling, making it ready to drink and enjoy sooner: from now on, in fact.
Expect fresh and tempting aromas of cherry and redcurrant with a hint of oak. There's an agreeable liveliness on the palate that merges into a fuller, rounder sensation of fruit intensity. The creamy richness contributed by aging in oak enhances this satisfying weight well into the spicy, lingering finish.
