    A suave, aristocratic, classic built on delicacy and finesse as opposed to power and blockbuster fruit, the 2000 requires introspection, but what one finds is extremely rewarding. This graceful, symmetrical, refined effort displays a dark ruby/purple color in addition to a sweet perfume of white flowers intermixed with black currants, licorice, and subtle new oak. Medium-bodied, with sweet but noticeable tannin, and a dense finish that builds gradually and persistently, it appears to be the finest d'Issan produced in over four decades. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2022. -The Wine Advocate
  • Decanter
    Rating: 4/5 - As reviewed by Decanter. Fine, classic, slightly 'burnt' bouquet, good ripe fruit, lovely concentration and florality. Good oak, very elegant, shows Margaux finesse. Lovely. Drink 2009-20.
