53 Ch Kirwan : glorious medium bodied rose colour obviously with browning at meniscus but still looking in super shape for a wine of this age. Classically cool crisp Bordeaux nose , the bouquet of rose, a hint of "terroir" (Brett) ; lively (!) entry, flavours of rose , bramble berry , lovely touch of fruit sweetness (!) long flavours dancing thanks to beautiful natural acidity. Classic Margaux commune. A beauty.

Chateau Kirwan 1981. Smoky jalapeño kind of reminds of mescal. Lots decaying leaves and dirt, old leather, with a hint of oxidation on the nose. The tannins and acid held up quite well for 34 year old Bordeaux from a cooler vintage. — 7 years ago
