Chateau d'Issan

Chateau d'Issan is a wine born of subtlety and elegance. With the exquisite bouquet unique to Margaux, Issan has become synonymous with the charm, suppleness and finesse that are the hallmarks of its great terroir.

Wine Advocate

A strong effort from proprietor Emmanuel Cruse, d'Issan's 2009 was fashioned from minuscule yields of 18 hectoliters per hectare, and its 13.7% natural alcohol set a record at this estate. Composed of 62% Cabernet Sauvignon and 38% Merlot, it exhibits a classic Margaux fragrance of acacia flowers/violets, blueberries, cassis, licorice and camphor. Opulent and full-bodied with silky tannins as well as a rich, dense style, it will be interesting to compare the 2009 with the brilliant 2000 and 2005 over the next two to three decades. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2035+.

Score: 93. —Robert Parker, February 2012.

Wine Spectator

A taut but fresh style, with plum skin, mesquite and mineral notes running along. There's a solid core of steeped blackberry fruit in reserve, and the perfumy finish has latent grip. Best from 2013 through 2023.

Score: 91. —James Molesworth, March 31, 2012.
