    2013 Margaux Troisieme Cru Classe

    Chateau d'Issan ideal geographical location, at the heart of the Margaux appellation, adds to the exceptional quality of the wines.

    The 2012 vintage is a Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot blend with remarkable aromas and superb balance between tannins and fruits. The palate is very silky with lovely structure, generous, and luscious. This Margaux 3e Cru Classe carries a lot of length on the finish, a mark of outstanding terroirs.

    Wine Advocate-Parker :
    The 2012 Château d'Issan, builds on the richness of the second wine and adds more body, structure and density. It has an inky purple color and a stunning nose of spring flowers, blueberry and blackberry fruit as well as touches of incense and graphite. Medium to full-bodied and stunningly concentrated, this 2012 is a great success in the vintage, one of the superstars. Moreover, its precociousness suggests it could be drunk in the next 4-5 years or cellared through 2025. I underrated this wine dramatically in my report of April, 2013 (Issue 206).
