Blason d’issan is the second wine of the Château d'issan, third Grand Cru Classé in 1855 of the Margaux appellation. It is made from a blend of 60% Merlot and 40% Cabernet Sauvignon vines ripened in 35% new oak.
The nose is a light, slightly earthy bouquet with aromas of blackberry. The palate is medium-bodied with slightly crunchy tannins with gourmet aromas of toasted almonds and fruit. A 2016 vintage of great freshness that is both fleshy and extremely fine.
This second wine of the Château d'issan, gourmand, round and fruity, is a sure bet for the Margaux appellation.
