2017 Kirwan, Margaux (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1357372 95 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark A full wine, this comes from an estate at the top of its form. The balance between tannins and blackberry fruits is just right, offering density and richness. *Cellar Selection* (RV) Inner quote mark (1/2020)

93 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark This shows fantastic depth and fruit quality for the vintage with crushed currants, raspberries and flowers to the medium to full body, round and ripe tannins and flavorful finish. Good tension and poise. Inner quote mark (1/2020)

90-92 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark The 2017 Château Kirwan is another charming, high quality Margaux. Possessing terrific purity in its blue fruits, charcoal, graphite, and obvious minerality, it hits the palate with medium-bodied richness, a fresh, vibrant texture, and a ripe, yet present tannin. Given its purity of fruit and overall charm, it should be drinkable with 2-3 years of bottle age and cruise for 15 years or more. Inner quote mark (4/2018)

90-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark 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. (LPB) Inner quote mark (4/2018)

91 points Decanter

Outer quote mark This is well extracted, with dark berry fruits, attractive tobacco leaf and charcoal notes. It has that same savoury frame that so many from Margaux have this year, and the fruit character is not bursting with generosity but is still expressive and lyrical. It really does offer something for those looking for a more sculpted wine. Medium term drinking. (JA) Inner quote mark (4/2018)

90 points Vinous

Outer quote mark 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. (NM) Inner quote mark (2/2020)

90 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Red currant and damson plum notes are melded together, while lilac, lavender and incense accents swirl around. The elegant, fine-grained finish pulls them together with a savory stitching. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. (JM) Inner quote mark (3/2020)
