Château d’Issan is a Third Growth of the 1855 Imperial Classification. The wine is made from the old vines in the Château d’Issan enclosure in the middle of the Margaux appellation. The soil here is mainly made up of surface gravel on top of a clay subsoil, which contributes to optimal ripeness and freshness in the two grape varieties, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Château d’Issan expresses the exquisite bouquet so characteristic of Margaux and stands out with its suppleness, subtlety, elegance and long keeping potential that come from its unique terroir.
Grapes Blend: 65% Cabernet Sauvignon and 35% Merlot.
A bouquet of great concentration, revealing the perfect maturity of the fruit. Fragrances of blackcurrant, plum and delicate scents of dried flowers, we find all the elegance and distinction of racy Margaux.
On the palate, the caressing attack reveals all the crunchiness and freshness of the fruit while the silky tannins give the wine that enveloping touch on the palate so specific to Margaux. With a good length, the finish ends in a freshness imbued with minerality.
