Château Kirwan was one of the châteaus actually visited by America's first wine connoisseur, Thomas Jefferson.  At the time, Jefferson thought is was "second in quality behind Margaux, La Tour, Haut-Brion, and La Fite."

Tasting Notes

"The 2017 Kirwan has a highly perfumed, very floral bouquet. It is almost like walking into your neighborhood florist! The palate is rich and silky smooth on the entry, a very concentrated Kirwan with saturated tannins. Certainly one of the richer takes of the vintage within the appellation, it just needs more delineation and terroir expression on the finish. Maybe it will with time? One for the cellar." - Neal Martin, vinous.com, (February, 2020), Rating: 90, Drink: 2024-2040

"Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2017 Kirwan has a warm blackberries and black raspberries nose with hints of kirsch, roses and sandalwood. The palate is medium-bodied with plush tannins and plenty of freshness supporting the elegant fruit, finishing perfumed and very pretty." - Lisa Perotti-Brown, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (4/27/2018, Issue 236), Ratings: 90-92
