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 EnthusiastBarrel Sample. This wine has an austere structure, with firm tannins. The fruit comes through slowly, revealing an attractive black-currant flavor and ample acidity. This will be a very fine wine with time; try after 2029.

Wine AdvocateThe 2016 D'Issan is blended of 64% Cabernet Sauvignon and 36% Merlot, aged in 50% new and 50% one-year-old French oak for 18 months. Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, it has vibrant black cherries and blackcurrants notes with chocolate mint, beef drippings, black olives and cigar box. Medium-bodied with a well-sustained, intensely flavored mid-palate, it has a rock-solid, grainy frame and long savory finish. 10,500 cases produced.

Wine SpectatorLight pepper and savory hints lead off in this bouncy, juicy version, with bright cassis and bitter cherry fruit forming the core. Shows a light mineral edge on the finish.
