- 93-94 Punkte JAMES SUCKLING: “Lovely depth of fruit to this, and a line of tannins that draw through the wine. It’s medium-to full-bodied with polished structure. Focused and transparent. Better than the 2018”.
94+ Punkte MARKUS DEL MONEGO: “Dark purple colour with violet hue and black core. Expressive nose with crisp fruit, blackberries, ripe blackcurrants, juicy plums and sweet elderberries. In the background elegant spiciness, hints of vanilla and toasting aroma, subtle oak. On the palate very elegant with juicy fruit, ripe tannins, excellent freshness and convincing length. A wonderful and well balanced wine”.
- 95-97 Punkte WINE ENTHUSIAST, Roger Voss: "Barrel Sample. With its new cellars, the estate is performing at top speed and this vintage keeps up the fine track record. Firm tannins and beautifully perfumed fruit are blending together to give a wine that has style as well as structured fruitiness, with all the elegance of great Margaux. Think long-term aging for this wine."
- 91-93 Punkte VINOUS, Neal Martin: "The 2019 Kirwan offers a quintessential Margaux bouquet with vivid black and blue fruit laced with crushed violets, a sensual and generous nose that will please many. The palate is medium-bodied with fleshy rounded tannins, one of the texturally creamiest within the Margaux appelation. I feel it just shaves away some tension and grip on the finish. This will be a thoroughly pleasurable Kirwan."
- 93 Punkte DECANTER, Jane Anson: "Careful extraction of the sappy, and enjoyably structured, blackcurrant and blackberry fruits. This is a quality Kirwan that, as with last year, is a fairly serious take on the vintage within the appellation. An earthy, smoked cedar note comes out as the structure relaxes, and there is a lot to enjoy in this wine, which is certain to power through the decades. Blend completed with 6% Petit Verdot and for the first time 1% Carmanère. Drinking Window 2024 – 2040"
