Château D Issan Margaux Third Growth 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

93-95 points Robert Parker: Following the lustrous 2000 and 2005, the 2009 is another terrific effort from proprietor Emmanuel Cruse. Tiny yields of 18 hectoliters per hectare, 13.7% natural alcohol, and a blend of 62% Cabernet Sauvignon and 38% Merlot have resulted in a wine boasting stunning minerality along with notes of flowers, blueberries, and black currants. Full-bodied with silky tannin, a tremendous opulence, and levels of density and richness never before seen at this estate, this brilliant d'Issan should age for three decades or more. (Tasted two times.) (Apr 2010)

Château d'Issan:
Wto estates have dominated the Margaux region throught the centuries: Mothe-Margaux and Mothe-Cantenac, knoen today as Chateau Morgaux and Chateau d'Issan.

A taut but fresh style, with plum skin, mesquite and mineral notes running along. Theres a solid core of steeped blackberry fruit in reserve, and the perfumy finish has latent grip. Best from 2013 through 2023. Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2009 dIssan 750ml

Bright medium ruby-red. Wild aromas of redcurrant, blueberry, mocha, smoke and game. Very rich and full for Margaux if a bit youthfully monolithic today following its silky entry, with black fruit flavors accompanied by medicinal chocolate and ment... Stephen Tanzers IWC.
