The founding of Chateau Kirwan dates to 1710 Chateau Kirwan was one of the few Medoc properties that Thomas Jefferson, the Ambassador to France and visited on his Bordeaux wine tasting trip. We know this based on the personal records and diaries of Thomas Jefferson, written in 1780.
Château Kirwan is a wine that is produced from the best parcels of the vineyard that have mainly gravel soils, but some are also clay. The fruit is picked and sorted twice by hand, then vinified in separate batches corresponding to individual vineyard parcels. Half the oak barrels used to age the wine for eighteen months are renewed every year.
Violets, lilacs, sweet cherries, wet earth and just a hint of tobacco. On the palate, the wine is lush, soft, silky and loaded with sweet, dark red fruits. There is sweetness, elegance and purity in the finesse driven finish.
