Wine.comA 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
DecanterRating: 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.
