A fine Margaux red wine by Château d'Issan

The estate

Château d'Issan has been a renowned Bordeaux wine since the 12th century. This fine Margaux wine is now back in the limelight thanks to the involvement of the Lorenzetti family, also owners in Saint-Estèphe and Pauillac, along with the Cruse family.

The vineyard

Château d'Issan’s 59-hectare vineyard is spread over three appellations. Most of it is cultivated on the gravelly hilltops and alluvial hills of Margaux.

The blend

Château d'Issan 1996 comprises a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.

The tasting

Château d'Issan 1996 offers a seductive concentration, complexity and refinement.

J. Robinson
Wine Advocate-Parker :
This property continues to reassert itself, with a renewed commitment to quality. The 1996 d'Issan has turned out beautifully in bottle. It exhibits a dark ruby/purple color as well as an elegant, floral, blackberry, and smoky-scented nose. The wine is medium-bodied and complex in the mouth, with subtle new oak, gorgeously ripe, sweet black currant fruit, and well-integrated tannin and acidity. This quintessential Margaux-styled wine is elegant and rich. Anticipated maturity: 2004-2020.
