Description

A Margaux Cru Classé that delights with its finesse and concentration

The estate

Ranked 3rd Cru Classé in Margaux in the 1855 Médoc classification, Château Kirwan has belonged to the Schÿler family since 1925. Boosted by the dynamism of Philippe Delfaut and endowed with infrastructures commensurate with its terroir, Château Kirwan belongs to the elite of the Margaux Grand Crus.

The vineyard

Situated on the Cantenac plateau, the Château Kirwan vineyard covers 37 hectares of vines. This superb hillside of gravel and clay produces great Margaux wines.

The vintage

Particularly dry, the winter of 2022 was recognised as the coldest in the last ten years. Thanks to the rigour of the teams, the frosts at the beginning of April had no impact on the vineyards. The high temperatures at the beginning of May encouraged rapid vegetative development and flowering. Despite lower rainfall in June than in other appellations, the grapes ripened very early. The scorching summer had an impact on young vines, grape pruning and yields. The harvest began on 5 September, compared with 23 September in 2021, making it the earliest in the estate's history.

Winemaking and ageing

Early harvest to preserve the freshness of the fruit and acidity, while limiting the sugar content. Gentle extraction using R'pulse instead of traditional pumping over. Vatting for 21 days. Alcoholic and malolactic fermentation. Aged in barrels.

Blend

Cabernet Sauvignon (55%)
Merlot (32%)
Cabernet Franc (7%)
Petit Verdot (6%).
