    2014 Margaux, from Bordeaux.

    The 2014 Chateau d'Issan is unique, recognizable thanks to its terroir. In this vintage Cabernet Sauvignon is particularly appreciated for its aromatic and gustatory outline. An unexpected and very long Indian summer allowed a slowly ripeness. The 2014 Issan is 77% Cabernet Sauvignon and 23% Merlot. The wine is original thanks to a deep, black fruit aromatic aspect with intense freshness. The palate enjoys solid balance on sophisticated, creamy and elegantly silky tannins. On the fruit, the finish fills the palate with the freshness from Cabernet. This wine is a great Troisième Cru Classé from Margaux.

    Wine Advocate-Parker :
    The Château d'Issan 2014 is a blend of 77% Cabernet Sauvignon and 23% Merlot picked between 25 September and 15 October and matured in 50% new oak. It has a very precise, quite minerally bouquet that has that tradamark violet touch that pins down the appéllation. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins and good acidity; appreciable depth with chewy black tarry fruit towards the finish. This is a guttsier d'Issan that will probably be one of the longer lasting Margaux crus of the vintage. I've been smitten by recent vintages from this glorious Margaux estate, but I detected just a mote of greenness on a couple of samples that I hope will vanish by the time of bottling. If it does then it will merit a higher score. Tasted three times.
