2008 Château Kirwan, Margaux

2008 Château Kirwan, Margaux

Ref: BORD0894
Red  |  Still  |  13% ABV

At the beginning of the 18th century this property was bought by Sir John Collingwood. His daughter married a Mark Kirwan and the property took on his name. And it was Mark Kirwan who built the chateau we recognise today. After Kirwan's death, the property fell into the ownership of the Mayor of Bordeaux who, in turn, gifted it to the city. The firm of wine merchants called Schroder and Schyler were asked to manage the property and finally, in 1925, S&S bought Kirwan. The chateau is still a home to the Schyler family.

N.B. 51% Cab Sauv, 18% Merlot,16% Cab Franc and 15% Petit Verdot There are smoke and vanilla notes to the floral black cherry and cassis nose. The wood's quite evident This is very backward and nutty. A highly structured palate, with pretty, pure cassis flavours. The fruit is scented. Just needs time. Bowes Wine original note

Sweetness Explained
Sweetness Explained


All our wines are given a Sweetness Indicator from 1 to 5, with 1 being the driest and 5 being the sweetest.
This can be found for every wine under the Wine Details tab. 

Most red wines are dry and therefore are indicated with a 1. The sweetness becomes more relevant with white wines, sparkling wines and pudding/dessert wines such as Sauternes and Tokaji.
