Chateau Kirwan has enjoyed extensive investment in both the winery and vineyard over recent years and the results are starting to show, not only in their amazing classed growth Kirwan, but also the second wine labelled as Charmes de Kirwan. Usually made from the younger vines, this wine receives the same meticulous care and attention in the winery as the top wine.
55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc and 5% Petit Verdot.
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. Drink after 2022.
