A delicate and aromatic second wine from the Margaux appellation

The estate

Chateau d’Issan is a Bordeaux estate renowned since the 12th century. Throughout history, the exceptional wines of this property have graced the tables of kings and emperors. Blason d'Issan is the Second Wine of Chateau d'Issan, created in 1995.

The vineyard

The 59-hectare vineyard covers three appellations. Most of it is planted in the gravel and alluvial hills of Margaux. Blason d'Issan is made from the youngest vines of the Margaux terroir.

The wine

Blason d'Issan is the Second Wine of Chateau d'Issan.

The vintage

The mild conditions of the winter season, the warmest recorded since the beginning of the 20th century, led to an early budding of the vines. While the sunshine and warm temperatures of March and April favored a rapid flowering, the late spring was very rainy. A dry and sunny month of July marked the beginning of veraison on July 7. The rainy days of mid-August did not affect the vigor or the health of the vineyard. The late season conditions were ideal, particularly the thermal amplitudes, which helped to refine the ripeness and achieve an optimal balance of grapes. The latter showed very good concentration.

Vinification and aging

Harvested manually, the grapes were delicately transported by gravity to the vat, where a precise plot-by-plot vinification took place in temperature-controlled stainless steel vats. Aging was carried out in barrels (50% of which were new oak barrels).

The blend

The Blason d'Issan 2020 was made from a blend of Merlot (57%), Cabernet Sauvignon (40%) and Petit Verdot (3%).

The tasting

The Blason d´Issan 2020 seduces with its structure, its aromatic richness and the finesse of its tannins.
