Tasting Notes

Still somewhat tannic but very much in the style that Kirwan has favored over recent vintages, this is a full-bodied, muscular, powerhouse effort. The wine still has a dense ruby/purple color, with loads of blackberries, cassis, and some noticeable new oak still lingering in the background. Powerful, rich, and full, this wine needs another 2-3 years of cellaring and should age nicely for another 20 years.

This Margaux estate is enjoying a renaissance with full-flavored, muscular wines being produced. The finest Kirwan I have ever tasted, the 2000 is a full-bodied, multidimensional, rich, powerhouse exhibiting a black/purple color and a sweet, chewy, concentrated style with superb intensity, ripeness, and length. It should last for decades. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2025.
