Château d'Issan Tasting Notes  
Chateau d'Issan is a wine born of subtlety and elegance. With the exquisite bouquet unique to Margaux, Issan has become synonymous with the charm, suppleness and finesse that are the hallmarks of its great terroir.
Wine Spectator  
Blackberry and mineral aromas follow through to a full body, with silky tannins and a medium finish. Subtle and attractive, but lacks a little concentration. —James Suckling, 91 points
Wine Advocate  
A strong effort from proprietor Emmanuel Cruse, d?Issan's 2009 was fashioned from minuscule yields of 18 hectoliters per hectare, and its 13.7% natural alcohol set a record at this estate. Composed of 62% Cabernet Sauvignon and 38% Merlot, it exhibits a classic Margaux fragrance of acacia flowers/violets, blueberries, cassis, licorice and camphor. Opulent and full-bodied with silky tannins as well as a rich, dense style, it will be interesting to compare the 2009 with the brilliant 2000 and 2005 over the next two to three decades. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2035+. 93 points
