2009 Margaux 3e Cru Classe

Chateau d'Issan vineyard is located at the heart of Margaux appellation. This prime location allows for the creation of rare quality wines. The 2009 Chateau d'Issan is an exceptional blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Merlot.

This remarkable 3e Cru Classe from Bordeaux boasts volume, a lot of thickness, and strong tannins: classy and pure. Red fruits coat a fresh, lively, and elegant palate.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
A strong effort from proprietor Emmanuel Cruse, d'Issan's 2009 was fashioned from minuscule yields of 18 hectoliters per hectare, and its 13.7% natural alcohol set a record at this estate. Composed of 62% Cabernet Sauvignon and 38% Merlot, it exhibits a classic Margaux fragrance of acacia flowers/violets, blueberries, cassis, licorice and camphor. Opulent and full-bodied with silky tannins as well as a rich, dense style, it will be interesting to compare the 2009 with the brilliant 2000 and 2005 over the next two to three decades. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2035+.
