"As always, this estate has produced a blockbuster style of Margaux in 2010, with the more masculine side of the appellation providing density, power, big body, loads of fruit, extract and richness. This wine is powerful and concentrated, but by no means excessively extracted. Dense purple, muscular, deep and impressive, it is a wine that allows for no compromise among wine lovers. Forget it for 6-10 years and drink it over the following 20-40 years.

Keep in mind that in the 19th century, Kirwan was making some of the longest-lived wines of Margaux, so it is nothing new to see this property produce big, blockbuster reds that require considerable patience from their prospective purchasers."
Robert Parker, Wine Advocate (205), March 2013

"Tasted at the UGC tasting in London. The Kirwan has a generous bouquet with blackberry, boysenberry, a touch of undergrowth and cedar. It is nicely defined although it needs just a little more tension. The palate is medium-bodied with a firm grip on the entry. There is plenty of black tarry fruit here with a dash of spice towards the finish, but again, it needs to develop a little more tension and vibrancy in the glass. Tasted November 2012."
Neal Martin,, February 2013
