Château d'Issan 2014 is a marvel. A fantastic vintage Margaux Cru Classé, more powerful than usual because of the high proportion of Cabernet Sauvignon in its blend (77%).
Faced with their success and the beautiful maturity of their tannins, cabernet sauvignon were widely favored. A winning option because the wine has a lot of character, a very nice burst of fruit with a juicy finish.
It has a very precise, quite minerally bouquet that has that trademark violet touch that pins down the appellation. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins and good acidity; appreciate depth with chewy black tarry fruit towards the finish. This is a gutsier d’Issan that will probably be one of the longer lasting Margaux crus of the vintage.”
The tips of 12bouteilles: Fantastic, atypical, this 2014 vintage of Château d'Issan is a sublime classified vintage. We highly recommend this wine, which is sure to be one of Margaux's best wines even a Médoc' one in the vintage.
