Chateau Kirwan is a classed growth (cru classé) property in the commune of Margaux (and appellation controlee) in the Medoc wine district in Bordeaux. It is owned by the Schyler family (today headed by Yann) of the négociant Schroder et Schyler. The vineyards are planted with cabernet sauvignon, merlot, cabernet franc and petit verdot vines. The winery has much of the latest equipment, much like all the major chateau in the Medoc: sorting table, cuverie stainless steel fermentation tanks, pneumatic press, etc. And they age their red wine in oak barrique barrels of course.
They make a Grand Vain, the Chateau Kirwan, a second wine called Les Charmes de Kirwan, and even a rosé wine, Bordeaux Clairet.
The chateau building has harmonious proportions and is situated in a beautiful park. It is famous for its rose flower plantation.
