2015 Kirwan, Margaux

SKU #1397371 96 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark This rich wine is full of fruit and structured with layers of tannin. It’s also stylish and elegant, with a suave texture that is already attractive. Black fruits mix with the structure to give a wine that will age well. Drink from 2026. *Editors’ Choice* (RV) Inner quote mark (12/2017)

93 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark The 2015 Château Kirwan showed beautifully and is just another data point pointing to Margaux being the star of the Médoc. It boasts a deep ruby/plum color as well as thrilling notes of black raspberries, toasted bread, Asian spices and lead pencil. With subtle background oak, a ripe, opulent texture, sweet tannin, and notable purity and elegance, give bottles 3-4 years in the cellar and enjoy through 2035+. Inner quote mark (11/2017)

93 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark A sleek wine with plenty of tannins, but they are already so well integrated that this has a very elegant personality. The long finish is rather mineral and very pure. Inner quote mark (2/2018)

93 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2015 Kirwan is positively stellar. Deep, fleshy and incredibly inviting, the 2015 will drink well right out of the gate. The balance of aromatics, fruit and structure is compelling. Plum, blackberry, chocolate, licorice and spice fill out the wine's creamy, supple frame. Readers should expect bold, fleshy style. (AG) Inner quote mark (2/2018)

92 points Decanter

Outer quote mark The nose has a frankness of expression, with cinnamon spice, cedar and an enjoyable, seductive swirl of ruby and blackberry fruits. Animated on the attack, it is full of pleasure and should be ready just a touch earlier than some others in the appellation - think eight rather than 10 to 12 years. There is complexity here, and a sense of freshness that runs through the structure. (JA) Inner quote mark (11/2017)

92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Leans toward the old-school side, with singed cedar and alder notes, perfumy black tea and mulled spice aromas and a core of gently steeped plum and black currant fruit, all carried by lightly dusty tannins through the finish. Balanced, charming and certain to age gracefully. (JM) Inner quote mark (3/2018)

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2015 Kirwan has a deep garnet-purple color and nose of crushed red currants, black cherries and black plums with wafts of tilled soil, fallen leaves and bark. The medium-bodied mouth offers nice intensity with soft, fine-grained tannins and plenty of freshness on the finish. (LPB) Inner quote mark (2/2018)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Mid crimson. Black peppery scent. A little bit jagged on the palate – not quite enough Margaux charm in evidence – yet. At the moment it’s a bit transitional. 17/20 points. (JR) Inner quote mark (10/2017)

K&L Notes

92 points Neal Martin in Vinous: "The 2015 Kirwan appears to have meliorated in recent months. It offers attractive raspberry preserve, mulberry and allspice aromas, gently unveiling tea leaf scents with aeration. The medium-bodied palate displays fine-grained tannin and a taut line of acidity; it is fresh and precise though never powerful, and it gently fans out toward the finish, leaving a dash of black pepper on the aftertaste. Classy. Tasted blind at the Southwold 2015 Bordeaux tasting." (7/2019)
