2007 Kirwan, Margaux

SKU #1054479 91 points Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Tasted blind at Farr Vintners 2007 Bordeaux tasting. I have always admired the 2007 Kirwan, one of the better Margaux wines of the vintage. Here, it has a clean and pure bouquet, not complex but demonstrating good vigor: wild strawberry, hot gravel and sous-bois notes complemented by cigar box after time. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, moderate depth, a little more feminine than its peers with cracked black pepper towards the finish. (NM) Inner quote mark (6/2017)

91 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark This is a solid, finely perfumed wine, the tannins giving concentration and structure. There is some severity as well, a sign that it is still settling into the bottle. But with its bitter chocolate character and tight texture, it should age well. *Editors' Choice* (RV) Inner quote mark (4/2010)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Vibrant crimson with a pale rim. There is some intensity and hidden depth here. Some lusciousness. It’s still showing more tannin than fruit but it is a seriously ambitious wine. Inner quote mark (3/2015)

Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Fruity and attractive, with mineral and berry character. Medium body, fine tannins and a clean finish. (JS, Web Only-2008) Inner quote mark

Lots of dark cassis fruit on the nose and the palate, with some herb and mineral aromas. This wine was showing more chewy tannins than the other wines, with an astringent mouthfeel.
