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."
"The 2019 Kirwan offers a quintessential Margaux bouquet with vivid black and blue fruit laced with crushed violets, a sensual and generous nose that will please many. The palate is medium-bodied with fleshy rounded tannins, one of the texturally creamiest within the Margaux appelation. I feel it just shaves away some tension and grip on the finish. This will be a thoroughly pleasurable Kirwan." - Neal Martin, vinous.com, (November, 2019) Ratings: 91-93, Drink: 2024-2045
