2011 Margaux 3e Cru Classe, Bordeaux.

Chateau d'Issan is located in the heart of the Margaux appellation, and enjoys a favourable geographical situation that brings a certain quality to the wine. This 2011 Margaux 3e Cru Classe Issan is 69% Cabernet Sauvignon and 31% Merlot.

 
This vintage is marked by a good balance between melted and bold tannins. The structure is somewhat fleshy and dense. The 2011 Chateau d'Issan is a charming wine and is one of the best vintages of the Chateau. The finish, faithful to those of the previous vintages, is characterised by a certain strength and length. The wine purity is remarkable. The former is fresh and possesses an incredible velvety texture.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Its bigger sister, the 2011 d'Issan exhibits an attractive perfume of black cherries, earth and background loamy soil and oak notes. Although elegant, medium-bodied and well-made, it is less impressive than other vintages have been over the last 10-15 years. Drink it over the next decade.
