Blason d'Issan, Margaux

Blason d'Issan, Margaux

This is the second wine of Château d'Issan; a blend of 61% Cabernet Sauvignon and 39% Merlot aged in French oak barrels, of which 35% are new. The grapes come from plots of vines that are around 18 years old and are not yet ready to make the first wine. Distinguished by the suppleness, charm and finesse that defines the appellation. This vintage was awarded 16.5 by both Jancis Robinson and Decanter, the latter commenting, 'Lovely fragrant nose, pure Margaux, real quality and depth for a second wine.'
