Earth, tobacco, smoke, truffle and cassis notes lead to a medium bodied, soft, silky, round, wine that is already offering a lot of pleasure today. The wine finishes with supple textured cherries and spice. d'Issan is not a vintage for long aging. I'd drink it over the next decade.
(From 2006 Vintage) This is why people love Bordeaux. Not a great year but with a little age this is really doing great. Fresh and classic nose of bright red fruits, rocks and floral tones. This really comes alive on the palate, it's concentrated with tangy raspberry and earth but still has the tannins to balance and good acidity.
