Château d'Issan 2018 is a Margaux 3rd Grand Cru Classé. The estate has belonged to the Cruse family since 1945. The wine comes from the old vines of the château's enclosure, located in the heart of the Margaux Appellation. The terroir is mainly composed of gravel on the surface and clay at depth, offering optimal ripeness and freshness of our two grape varieties: Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.
The 2017 vintage of Chateau d'Issan is a blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon and 35% Merlot.
The color is moderately intense, a garnet purple. The nose releases aromas of cooked plums, hot blackcurrant and cooked cherries as well as notes of earth, balsamic, pepper. The attack on the palate is opulent with good acidity and juicy red fruits, the finish is spicy.
The advise of 12bouteilles: We advise you to caraffeinate it at least one hour before tasting it. Serve between 16 and 18°C.
