CRITICAL ACCLAIM


Wine Enthusiast - “This big, rich wine offers dense tannins as well as sumptuous black fruits. Fruit and acidity come together to create a wine with both richness and juicy blackplum flavors. Drink this powerful wine from 2025.”

Decanter – 93pts - “This is not generous but is hugely concentrated and opens with a Margaux floral flourish. Damson and cassis are joined by a shot of freshness on the well-constructed palate. The tannins are a little overly tight on the finish - you can feel the juice slightly strangled by them - but it's clearly a wine that's built to last. 4% Petit Verdot rounds out the blend.”


James Suckling - “There’s fragrant charm here with purple flowers and a swathe of ripe, juicy dark berries. This has a firmish overall feel with sturdy tannins, driving ripe and fresh, red and dark berries long. The oak is very nicely played.”

Wilfred Wong – 91pts - “While I have enjoyed Kirwan through the years, the 2016 vintage seems to have taken another step up in its performance. This wine is bright and lively. Its aromas and flavors of red currants and chalk should pair it well with an eye of the round roast wrapped with crisp bacon.”


Wine Spectator - “Bright damson plum, bitter cherry and rose petal notes lead the way in this fresh and focused version, with light rooibos tea and mineral accents underlining the silky, elegant finish. Sneaky long too. Best from 2021 through 2031.”


Robert Parker - “Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, the 2016 Kirwan is scented of red plums, cassis, redcurrants, earth and cigar box. The palate is medium-bodied, lean, chewy and lively with an earthy finish.”


Jeb Dunnuck - “One of the more finesse-driven examples of this cuvée that I can remember, the 2016 Château Kirwan offers up a medium ruby color to go with notes of smoke tobacco, gravelly minerality, graphite, and sweet cassis fruit. Medium-bodied, elegant and supple, if not a touch lean, it’s not a blockbuster but has outstanding purity and notable elegance. Drink it over the coming 15 years or so.”
