Some Bordeaux lovers particularly like wines from Margaux AOC. Do you know why? Margaux AOC wines tend to be softer and 'more elegant' when compared to their other Left Bank counterparts. This is due to their typically higher content of Merlot. A practice among the producers of Margaux AOC.
This also means that if you like your wines fruity and young, perhaps Margaux AOC wines would be more approachable! Having said that, this was already beautiful when we tasted at an event which we supplied in Oct 2022! We simply opened a few hours before dinner. Did not event need to decant! We highly recommend this.
'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..' Vinous 92 pts (July 2019)
'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. Drink or hold.' James Suckling 93 pts
