The wine presents a high gustative quality due to the yield and the balance of our blending between merlots and cabernets sauvignons. very beautiful extraction of the skin components to give a rich, structured and deep wine.
Great with many years left of course. Drank in Galway in Ireland where Kirwan were one of the 12 tribal families of the city before later making wine. Mature and elegant, captivating more than fruit delivery. The nose is mature, complex and characterful, floral elements, not surprising of course from this great Margaux. Nose has aged Margaux'ness, berries, red fruit, toasted expresso, mint tinges and layers of wood and wonderfulness.
Bordeaux Superior..........Intense garnet color with notes of plum and red fruits on the nose. A modern style of claret that benefits from ageing in new wood. Ripe, soft bramble and cassis fruit with supple tannins and a savoury finish

Lacryma Christi Rosso, or tears of Christ, is one of the most traditional wines from Campania. There are many stories of how Lacryma Christi received its name. One legend tells that when Jesus was ascending to Heaven, he glanced down at the earth, saw the Bay of Naples and Mount Vesuvius and wept tears of joy at its beauty. Those tears fell on the slopes of Mount Vesuvius and vines miraculously grew in their place. Another story is based on winemaking techniques used by local monks in Campania. Lacryma Christi has been produced since the Roman Empire and as the monks didn’t have any filtering equipment, juice was instead passed through a canvas. As the wine fell drop-by-drop through the material, it was said to look like tears.
