Tasted blind at Farr Vintners 2007 Bordeaux tasting. The 2007 D'Issan has a reserved bouquet, nicely defined and focused with good tension, a mixture of red and black fruit mixed with cedar and cigar box scents. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannin. It is nicely balanced even though it is missing some depth on the finish. Looking back, it is quite Saint Julien in style, and it should drink nicely over the next 5-7 years. Tasted March 2015.

Tasting note


The 2006 Chateau d'Issan, a Third Growth from the esteemed Margaux appellation, is a wine that exudes the classic sophistication and elegance of its terroir. With a medium to deep ruby-red hue, this wine presents a bouquet of perfumed red fruits, enriched by opulent notes of cocoa-butter and cedar. On the palate, the red fruits are elevated by a fresh acidity that is well-balanced, while the touch of warming alcohol adds weight to the fair-length finish, which is graced by intriguing coffee-ground nuances. Aged in French oak barrels for 16 to 18 months, this wine showcases the finesse and long keeping potential characteristic of Margaux. Enjoy the harmonious interplay of strong tannins and complex red fruit aromas, culminating in a supremely delicate finish.
