Chateau d'Issan Margaux 2010
"Starts off elegant and balanced, with blueberry and floral character. Full and silky. But turns chewy and mouth puckering. Very extracted. But will turn out really outstanding. Best from here in decades…93-94." JS 4/11. "The dense blue/purple-tinged 2010 reveals notes of violets, blue and black fruits, a striking minerality, excellent purity, texture and length, a medium to full-bodied mouthfeel and noticeable but sweet, well-integrated tannins...94-96" WA 5/11

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.
External Reviews for Chateau d'Issan Margaux
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.
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.
