Château d'Issan 3ème Cru Classé, Margaux 75cl

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.
