Chateau d’Issan 2014 is a luxurious blend of 77% Merlot and 23% Cabernet Sauvignon which displays strong cassis and black fruit aromas. It is a rich wine with underlying freshness, creamy notes, mocha and aromatic violet notes which balance perfectly with the dense fruit. One of the best Margaux’s of 2014.
Chateau d’Issan is a beautiful 18th century Chateau (complete with moat) that is often cited as one of the most romantic Chateaus in Bordeaux. The vineyards cover 52 hectares and are planted with 70% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Merlot. The wines are rich, silky and a little heady in hot vintages but are always well textured and elegant. The Chateau is one of the best performing Margaux estates and well deserves its 3rd growth classification. Blason d’Issan is the 2nd wine from the estate and is always amazing value.
