Chateau d'Issan Margaux 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

"Good focus, with a dusty frame but a good sappy core of blackberry and black cherry. Nice perfumy edge on the finish...88-91" WS 04/12 "Only 57% of the production made it into the 2011 d’Issan, which tips the scales at a lofty 13.2% natural alcohol. A blend of 69% Cabernet Sauvignon and 31% Merlot, it possesses a dark ruby/purple color as well as a classic Margaux perfume of sweet blueberries, black currants, spring flowers and licorice. Ripe and deep with impressive intensity, it is one of the stars of the 2011 vintage. The wine’s silky tannins, fresh acids and stunning length suggest it will drink well for 15-20 years...91-93" WA 04/12

Cropped between 12th and 26th September the d Issan 11 is a blend of 61% Cabernet Sauvignon and 39% Merlot that was cropped at 36hl/ha. The nose is closed and minerally tightly wound with scents of limestone and granite. The palate is medium-bodied with tensile tannin crisp blackberry blueberry and a touch of vanilla. It has a gentled but insistent grip a slight saline note towards the composed finish that is focused and poised. This has good potential and continues d Issan s good run of fo

Dark red and intense color. Fruity nose of average aromatic intensity. Suave on entry the wine develops smooth with taste and a lovely sense of caressing the palate. Despite not having a powerful body it shows no weakness whatsoever. With fine-grained tannins this estate shows consistency in its expression. This is Chateau d'Issan Jean-Marc Quarin - www.quarin.com
