Château Kirwan 1982 displays an elegant and intense color with hints of orange. The nose is marvelously complex, combining notes of cedar, truffle, undergrowth and even pear. Freshness and softness unite in the mouth around a ripe and savory body. This beautiful balance is devoid of any harsh notes, right up to the superbly aromatic finale with bouquets of coffee and caramel. This wine has reached maturity; it is to be enjoyed now and for a few years to come.
