Product Description

Bottle presented in a classic wooden gift box A delectably full and complex 3rd Growth Margaux, silky with ripe fruit and offering dense underlying spice and liquorice notes.

Château d’Issan dates way back to 1152, when its wines were served at the wedding of Eleanor of Aquitane and King Henry II so beginning the British love affair with claret. The 120-hectare estate currently has 44 hectares under vine on prime gravel, clay and limestone soils over a gently undulating slope of land. The vineyard comprises 62% Cabernet Sauvignon and 38% Merlot vines. Some of d’Issan’s vines are over 60 years old, while the majority are in their prime at around 35. D’Issan’s wines are vinified in 37 temperature-controlled stainless steel vats, ranging in size from 73 to 148 hectolitres, giving the winemakers very precise control over each parcel of grapes. Once fermented, the wine is matured in barriques (50% new) for around 18 months before rigorous selection and bottling. A blend of 77% Cabernet Sauvignon and 33% Merlot, Château d’Issan 2014 delivers ripe dark fruit over deeper spice and savoury notes, with bright youthful tannins giving balance. Drink 2019 to 2030.
