Château Kirwan 2017 [futures]
• Domaine: Château Kirwan
• A.O.C.: Margaux
• Classification: Third Growth, 3ème Grand Cru Classé in 1855
Château Kirwan was one of the châteaus actually visited by America's first wine connoisseur, Thomas Jefferson. At the time, Jefferson thought is was "second in quality behind Margaux, La Tour, Haut-Brion, and La Fite."
"Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2017 Kirwan has a warm blackberries and black raspberries nose with hints of kirsch, roses and sandalwood. The palate is medium-bodied with plush tannins and plenty of freshness supporting the elegant fruit, finishing perfumed and very pretty." - Lisa Perotti-Brown, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (4/27/2018, Issue 236), Ratings: 90-92
