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.

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 menthol elements. Has the stuffing and length to support its big mouthdusting tannins. Offers impressive potential. Stephen Tanzers IWC.

Served blind at the Southwold 2009 tasting. The d Issan 09 shows very fine precision on the nose although it is not as multifaceted as other wines in the Margaux flight. There are scents of blackberry black olive and a faint maritime influence almost seaweed. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins. This is finely balanced with a touch of white pepper and a sweet liquorice tinged finish. A classy performance. Tasted January 2013. Neal Martins Wine Journal.
