Chateau Kirwan 1998, bottled in 2000, is marked with a label specifically designed to commemorate the 75 years of the Schÿler family’s presence at the Château. Armand Schÿler bought the property in 1925, and that was the beginning of a beautiful adventure.



Climate conditions: The beginning of spring brought dry, hot weather. Yet, the vines nearly froze during the month of May! Happily, the rest of the season proceeded much more smoothly with a beautiful month of August that brought exceptional sunshine. By the beginning of September we could predict a very high-quality vintage, as the grapes were sound, displaying uniform maturity.

TASTING: This great wine slowly follows the path to its evolution; it oscillates between periods of closure and openness during which one discovers a large aromatic palette filled with a mix of black fruits, the scents of woody underbrush, and hints of minerals. The tannins are strongly present and promise good ageing potential.
