Chateau Kirwan, 2003, Margaux, Bordeaux

Property of Mr Flabby Less
Chateau Kirwan, 2003, Margaux, Bordeaux

This is a third growth wine, which experts say is good to drink between 2009 and 2020. However, I think it's good to drink now and should stay this way for the next 5 years or so. I absolutely love the deep purple colour and I enjoy this balanced medium bodied wine with medium tannins and mild spicy oak taste. The nose is rich with licorice, plum and cassis. It also has floral scent of red berries and mellow gravel.
