Château d'Issan 3ème Cru Classé, Margaux

The wines from Chateau d'Issan have been receiving great reviews in the last decade, indicating the hard work to increase the quality has been paying off. Quality control is crucial when it comes to grape selection if the top quality is required, during a recent vintage only 57% of the grapes arriving at the cellar door were employed in the first wine. The estate is planted with 70% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Merlot, which approximates to the blend although depending on the year this could vary in either direction. At its best, d'Issan shows a wonderful explosion of strong, black fruit and creamy notes on the nose, whilst the palate is weighty, polished with some grip and crunchy tannins, intense and lengthy.
