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.

Probably a better wine that the bretty 2011 Kirwan I had difficulty drinking last week; hard to spend money on faulty wine #brett #badwinehygiene #freshwineisbetter

Hi Pete, yes, just the slightest "whiff " but nothing at all nasty of horsehair, angularity etc. really quite fine. Was a VG level bottle and it was under the then owners banner Schroder & schyler.

Living large, just like Dennis...Husband, father, friend, pilot, cowboy, sailor, and businessman. A man's man, a great dancer, and inspiration all around. RIP Dennis Kirwan. See you on the other side — 6 years ago

Margaux Red Bordeaux Blend 1981

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
