Chateau d'Issan Margaux 3ème Grand Cru Classé

Wine Details



Wine Description

A wonderful success of the vintage, the 2008 exhibits a dark plum Issan / garnet / purple color as well as abundant aromas of flowers, Asian spices, jammy plums and black currants.

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2012 Vintage) A touch of herbaceousness and abundant underbrush characteristics kept my score from going higher. Nevertheless, the wine offers an attractive fragrance of herbs, blue and red fruits and loamy soil undertones. Medium-bodied with an angular mouthfeel, it should drink well for a decade or more.
