Description

A stunning nose of spring flowers, blackcurrant and blue/black fruits galore, and an impressively opaque dark plum/purple color. With a rich, concentrated and pure mouthfeel, wonderfully sweet tannin, full-bodied density and richness, but elegance in abundance, this is a stunner, and one of the great Margaux of the vintage. Drink it now and over the next 20 years. - WA96

The Winery

Chateau d`Issan is a 3eme Cru Classe Margaux property that produces richly aromatic and silky-textured clarets that are often amongst the best of the appellation.

The beautiful 18th century chateau is surrounded by a moat and is frequently described as the most romantic in the Medoc. D`Issan has been owned by the Cruse family since 1945 and is presently owned and run by Emmanuel Cruse, his wife, and their son, Lionel. D'Issan has 52 hectares of vineyards planted with Cabernet Sauvignon (70%) and Merlot (30%). The grapes are traditionally vinified and the wine is then matured in oak casks (33% new) for 18 months. The wine is bottled unfiltered.
