The wines of Château d' Issan , strong of a magnificent terroir edge of Gironde, persist in the idea of hoisting the margalaise finesse atop the complexity and elegance.
(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.
