    2005 Margaux 3e Cru Classe

    The 2005 Chateau d'Issan displays an elegant, deep hue. Chateau d'Issan is located in Margaux appellation. This 3e Cru Classe from Bordeaux reveals flowers, and alternating notes of liquorice, red currant, and cherry. The palate is pure and has character. The finish is impressively long. The 2005 Chateau d'Issan will peak after many years of keep.

    Wine Advocate-Parker :
    The more serious grand vin twin, the 2005 d'Issan, has a stunning nose of spring flowers, blackcurrant and blue/black fruits galore, and an impressively opaque dark plum/purple color. With a rich, concentrated and pure mouthfeel, wonderfully sweet tannin, full-bodied density and richness, but elegance in abundance, this is a stunner, and one of the great Margaux of the vintage. Drink it now and over the next 20 years.
