    D'Issan

    Chateau d’Issan is one of the oldest in the Medoc with a history stretching back to the 1400s. With a moat, drawbridge and courtyard, this Margaux property is a classified historic monument.  The wines quality has dramatically increased since appointing Emmanuel Cruse in 1997.

    D'Issan 2003 (12x75cl)

    Vinous - Neal Martin (89)

    Tasted on several occasions, the 2003 d'Issan has long been a commendable performer in a vintage that did not favour the southern Médoc. The nose is fully matured with black plum and raspberry preserve, the palate with better acidity than its peers with brown spices congregating on the rounded, easy-going finish. Maybe it has recently lost a bit of its luster but it still deserves consideration. Tasted at a private dinner in London.

    D'Issan 2004 (6x75cl)

    Wine Advocate (91)

    A beautiful effort that is a model of elegance and symmetry, this 2004 d’Issan possesses a dark ruby/purple color as well as floral, raspberry, cherry, and blueberry aromas interwoven with notions of licorice and toasty oak. Beautiful ripeness, medium body, and a delicate integration of tannin and wood result in a pure Margaux that should be at its peak between 2009-2020+.

    D'Issan 2015 (6x75cl)

    Vinous - Antonio Galloni (95+)

    The 2015 d'Issan is a total knock-out. Spectacularly ripe and intense, the 2015 exudes richness in all of its dimensions. Super-ripe dark plum, lavender, spice, savory herbs, iron, smoke and new leather add myriad shades of nuance to this super-ripe, decidedly hedonistic Margaux. A powerful, dense wine, the 2015 is going to need a number of years before it is close to being ready to drink. I was quite impressed with d'Issan both times I tasted it. The 2015 has really come along nicely. The blend is 65% Cabernet Sauvignon and 35% Merlot, aged in 50% new oak. Eric Boissenot consults.

    Decanter (96)

    This is a brilliant Issan with richness and poise joined by a delicate acidity that pulls the fruit along. The tannins are deceptive, as they are supple and appealing, but the density and power builds over the palate and clearly indicates long ageing. A wine that feels like it's rooted in its appellation. 50% new oak. 40hl/ha yield, with 53% of production going into this wine, higher than in both 2017 and 2016. Eric Boissenot consults.

    The Drinks Business (93-95)

    D’Issan (Margaux; 65% Cabernet Sauvignon; 30% Merlot; 2% Cabernet Franc; 2% Malbec; 1% Petit Verdot; aging in oak barrels, 50% of which are new; 13.2% alcohol; pH 3.60; IPT 66; tasted at the property; Eric Boissenot is the consultant here). This is a little firm and closed on the nose at first. But once it relaxes and starts to open, it is gracious, cool, calm and rather lovely. This is archetypally of its terroir and its appellation and it has the cool vintage signature of the vintage too. Stylistically, it is now the closest wine in the appellation to Margaux itself. There is loads of graphite here; freshly picked wild herbs and a beautiful and very natural florality. On the palate, this is clear and crystalline; it glistens as it glides in and through the detailed mid-palate where, again, we find lots of lovely Margaux typicity. This is very pure, with intense crunchy fresh bright and lifted dark berry fruit – blackcurrant, blackberry and redcurrant leaf, a hint of blueberry and mulberry too. There is a delicacy and finesse to the fine-grained tannins and this builds nicely through the mid-palate to a very lifted and stylish, elegant and refined finish. Some might find this a little slender. But what it lacks in weight and density it more than makes up for in grace, elegance and precision. Above all, for me, this wine is characterised by it eloquent evolution over the palate. A great success and another clear marker of the great progress made here over the last few vintages.

    James Suckling (97-98)

    Extremely floral and fruity with currants and blackberries. It’s full-bodied and very layered with delicious, dense character. Full-bodied with dusty, layered tannins. Rich, but not heavy. Long and chewy on the finish. 55% cabernet sauvignon, 39% merlot, 3% cabernet franc, 2% petit verdot and 1% malbec.

    D’Issan (Margaux; 65% Cabernet Sauvignon; 30% Merlot; 2% Cabernet Franc; 2% Malbec; 1% Petit Verdot; aging in oak barrels, 50% of which are new; 13.2% alcohol; pH 3.60; IPT 66; tasted at the property; Eric Boissenot is the consultant here). This is a little firm and closed on the nose at first. But once it relaxes and starts to open, it is gracious, cool, calm and rather lovely. This is archetypally of its terroir and its appellation and it has the cool vintage signature of the vintage too. Stylistically, it is now the closest wine in the appellation to Margaux itself. There is loads of graphite here; freshly picked wild herbs and a beautiful and very natural florality. On the palate, this is clear and crystalline; it glistens as it glides in and through the detailed mid-palate where, again, we find lots of lovely Margaux typicity. This is very pure, with intense crunchy fresh bright and lifted dark berry fruit – blackcurrant, blackberry and redcurrant leaf, a hint of blueberry and mulberry too. There is a delicacy and finesse to the fine-grained tannins and this builds nicely through the mid-palate to a very lifted and stylish, elegant and refined finish. Some might find this a little slender. But what it lacks in weight and density it more than makes up for in grace, elegance and precision. Above all, for me, this wine is characterised by it eloquent evolution over the palate. A great success and another clear marker of the great progress made here over the last few vintages.
