Wine Rating: RP 91 points Drink by: 2019 - 2038
The 2014 Kirwan has a brisk raspberry and wild strawberry nose, a touch confit with rose petal scents emerging with time, the vanilla aspect observed in barrel now completely assimilated. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin and well-judged acidity. Harmonious in the mouth with good body, it builds nicely with cedar and white pepper-infused black fruit, though it just cuts away swiftly on the finish that maybe knocked off a point on the bottle tasting in October 2016, though six months later, a second bottle showed more persistence. This is a commendable Kirwan that should give 15-20 years of pleasure.
"The history of Château Kirwan is one of lineage and transmission. The estate has been built up from generation to generation since the 18th century, beginning as often is the case with a marriage, that in 1760 of an Irish shopkeeper, Mark Kirwan and the daughter of Sir John Collingwood, “Lord of Lasalle ”, an English merchant, who was one of the first Bordeaux negociants.
The bridegroom gave his name to the vineyard he created by adding the Ganet estate to the Lasalle property, both of which were located close to Cantenac village. Under his management, the property flourished and the wine from “Quirouen” was classified as a “second rank Grand Cru” in Thomas Jefferson’s work on Bordeaux wines, written at the time he was United States Ambassador to France."
