Chateau Kirwan Margaux · Primeur 3. Cru Classé 1855 · 2016
Grape varieties: 47 % Cabernet Sauvignon, 35 % Merlot,
10 % Cabernet Franc, 8 % Petit Verdot.
Tasting notes: Pyrenean gravel carried along by the Garonne
river during quaternary era at a depth of three to six meters.
This soil permits natural drainage, creates excellent conditions
for deep roots, and grows mainly cabernet and Petit Verdot
varieties of grapes.
These plots of land are located on the Cantenac plateau whose
highest point is “Moulin Robert” at 21 meters (23 yards) above
the level of the Gironde countryside.
The merlots grapes are planted in sandy and/or clayey gravel soil.
Pressing is in a vertical press with a precise pressure control,
straight runoff by gravity into the barrel, in order to get
optimum selection and quality on the press wines.
