Ch Kirwan 2021 Margaux

16

73% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Merlot, 8% Cabernet Franc, 6% Petit Verdot. Cask sample.
Deep crimson. Very sweet nose – an oak thing? Round and fleshy on palate entry and then the acidity creeps in. Is there the odd green note, perhaps from the Petit Verdot? Certainly a perfectly respectable refreshing, medium-bodied claret. Less ripe than the Giscours 2021 tasted alongside.
