Issan 2015


Case Format: 6x75cl

The Château D’Issan is a flamboyant wine filled with a rich bouquet of aromatics. Formed on an ancient site, D’Issan is dripping in history, with records of the estate dating back to the 12th century, and a wine production that has continued for the past two centuries. Its soil is made up of multiple gravel mounds and 15m high alluvial hills which allows the ground to drain well and forces the vines to develop deep roots. This unusual terroir is what allows for Château D’Issan’s distinct characteristics. Its 52 hectares of vineyard comprises Cabernet Sauvignon (c.65%), Merlot (c.30%), Cabernet Franc (c.2%), Petit Verdot (c.2%) and Malbec (c.1%), with the vines averaging 35 years in age – with some older than 70. In turn, the combination of unusual terroir and exceptional methods in production has formed potent, silky textured wines that are some of the best in Margaux.

Tasted blind. Quite sweet, smoked hickory oak with punch and a bit of drama. Juice and attack. Just scrapes a 17.

Jane Anson

The 70th anniversary of the Cruse family at Issan, this is packed with still-young and creamy cassis and black cherry fruits, gourmet brioche, liquorice and smoked earth notes, an exceptional vintage, that is harmonious and balanced. This was a warm summer but Issan has maintained freshness and juice, with signature Margaux floral and gunsmoke aromatics. The appellation of Margaux saw 32mm of rain compared to the northern Medoc that was closer to 110mm, and it shows in the concentration of this wine. 55% new oak. Harvest September 21 to October 10, yield 40hl/h. Retasted September 2022, confirms the exceptional quality of this vintage - a year where the fruit is so succulent that it is possible to enjoy today with a long carafe, but it is going nowhere.
