The intensity and precision of a red Grand Vin from Margaux

A great vintage for the Bordeaux region, 2018 will be remembered at Chateau d’Issan, a magnificent Grand Cru Classe of Margaux.

Following a rainy winter and spring, a beautiful summer settled in towards the end of June, with radiant sunshine that lasted until the date of harvest. These conditions favored the perfect ripening of the fruit, which showed a quality similar to 2009. Beginning on September 24 and ending on October 11, the harvest took place under the best conditions. The grapes were small in size, with thick skins, rich in anthocyanins, generous fruity flavors and refined tannins. The winemaking was carried out in a way that respected the fruit, with very gentle pump-overs. Once the blends were assembled in mid-January, the results were unanimous: the Chateau d'Issan 2018 revealed the signs of being one of the great vintages in the history of the property.

Blending Cabernet Sauvignon (60%) and Merlot (40%), the Chateau d'Issan 2018 seduces with its intense aromas and precision. Each grape variety brings a touch of personality to this wine. A magnificent vintage of Chateau d'Issan, which reminds us of the exceptional 2016.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2018 D'Issan is composed of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Merlot, aging in 50% new and 50% second year barrels for an estimated 18 months. With 13.97% alcohol and a deep garnet-purple color, it features baked berries, warm cherries and cassis with spice box and fragrant earth plus tea hints. Medium to full-bodied, it has a great core of muscular fruit with firm, fine-grained tannins, with nice freshness, finishing layered with mineral notions.
