This wine is the second label of Chateau D'Issan a 3rd growth from Margaux The wine is ruby with some sediments indicating that it hasn't been filtered. On the nose a lot of violets; very floral. eucaliptus, tobacco, blackberry, black plum, raspberry, worcestershire sauce, a beautiful stony minerality and vainilla. On the palate the wine is dry, with a good body, adding some cedar and meaty character to dark fruit, firm tannins coming mainly from the grape. the bright acidity helps to balance the wine and the finish is long with some oaky flavors linguering on the palate and a little saltiness. good example of Margaux with it's finesse and aromatic characteristics.

A complete, medium to full-bodied, exquisite Margaux from this medieval, moat-encircled, compellingly beautiful estate in the southern Medoc, D’Issan’s 2010 is a blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Merlot. The deep, gravelly soils mixed with clay have provided extraordinary aromatics. The yields were ridiculously low (22 hectoliters per hectare) and the wine tips the scaled at 13.7% natural alcohol. Production was small after the selection for the grand vin, and the result is a dense, purple-colored wine with beautiful aromatics of spring flowers, blueberries and black raspberries as well as hints of cassis, tar and charcoal. The wine is gorgeously pure, well-balanced, and soft enough to be approached in 4–5 years or cellared for 25–30.

Deep, bright ruby-purple. Classic highly perfumed aromas of blackcurrant, violet, crushed stone and gunflint. Bright, clean and concentrated but currently backward, with densely packed black fruit and mineral flavors displaying a wonderfully precise, penetrating quality. Finishes long and subtle, with an austere quality and a lingering note of violet. This will need plenty of time to show its best: I find that the better vintages of Issan age gracefully; while never turning into behemoths, they put on weight and flesh with bottle age. For example, the 1999 is drinking splendidly now. Enjoy this one from 2020 through 2040.

This red offers a grippy, charcoal-laced feel, cloaked by very fleshy plum, currant and blackberry confiture flavors. The long, tarry spine drives the finish, with extra bay leaf, maduro tobacco and warm stone notes. A touch taut, but should be ready to open soon enough. Best from 2014 through 2024.
