Chateau d'Issan Margaux 2015
*This item may have limited availability - please call ahead to have us check stock!*
By the beginning of February, the final blends of Chateau d’Issan and Blason
d’Issan had been determined after many weeks of meticulous tasting with our
team. The 2015 vintage is like no other, but is a faithful and lovely rendition
of its authentic Margaux terroir. All in all, this 2015 was an ideal vintage to
celebrate 70 years of harvests at Chateau d’Issan.

Wine Enthusiast93-95. Barrel Sample. This is a serious, structured wine. It has plenty of black plum flavor, although the firm tannins will play an important part in its development. The ample acidity and fresh finish are other harbingers for the wine's good future.
Wine AdvocateA blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon and 35% Merlot aged in 50% new and 50% one-year-old barrels for 18 months, the deep garnet-purple colored 2015 D'Issan simply sings with a beautiful perfume of wilted flowers, rose hip tea and mincemeat with a core of cherry preserves and blackberry tart plus a hint of underbrush. Medium-bodied, fine, fresh and elegant, it's very soft and silky in the mouth with a long finish.
Wine SpectatorBarrel Tasting: Focused, with a twinge of singed alder and cedar up front giving this a slightly old-school feel, followed by a good core of steeped plum and black currant fruit. Picks up a bit of the vintage's velvety edge on the finish, though the cedar note lingers as well.
