Château Kirwan Margaux Red Bordeaux Blend 2005 (375ml)

$38.99

...a deep ruby/purple color, lots of spice, a touch of wood and new oak... It’s all there, and the wine certainly has plenty of concentration... It should drink well for at least a quarter of a century. Robert Parker

375 mL. The third-growth neighbour to Brane-Cantenac. Kirwan seems to have had few friends among the critics, although it is carefully run and at its best (1961, '70, '75, '79) is as long-lived and classic as any one of the Margaux second-growths, making elegant, feminine claret. Michel Rolland has consulted here since 1992 and its wine has gained fruit, weight, and oak.

Cherry fruit, graphite, river rocks, and structure tannins make this a wonderful vintage. Enjoy!

I hate to do this, but this wine is eerily similar to the 2000 vintage I had so see that note. Obviously very consistent wine that is unique and just something about it that really appeals to me! Just can’t put my finger on it.

Leather, dark fruit, smooth mid-palate. Good finish.

Påtagligt tuff tanninstruktur för att vara 12 år gammalt. Rik, bred, klassisk cab sauvignon-dominerad druvmix där det mesta är på plats. Säker ännu godare om 10 år. Straffspark till tunt skivad gillad biff.

Château Margaux from 2005 is one of my favorite wines. Kirwan shows that the vintage shone fondly over other sites in the area. Cherry and mocha meld together, tannins grippy, texture velvety. Jolly good with a nice big slice of lamb shoulder at the East India club with a dear old friend.

Smoky berry and vanilla nose. Glossy, concentrated and structured with tannins and fruit battling on the lengthy finish with tannins winning at the moment.

2005 feels a little young for this wine. 2003 is better.
