Château Kirwan Margaux Grand Cru Classé AOC 2012
Deep and brilliant ruby red color.
Nose of black and red berries enhanced by aromas of spices, pink peppercorns and vanilla.
This vintage has a strikingly tactile quality: it starts out mellow, then offers a rich body, with nearly imperceptible tannins and an acidity that perfectly balances out its silky texture. The finale blends hints of perfectly ripened cherry and subtle roasted notes that continue to caress the palate.
18 months in barrels, 40% new oak.
The combination with grilled leg of lamb served with roasted rosemary potatoes and braised vegetables should definitely be tried.
