Blason d’Issan, Margaux 2016, Château d’Issan


SKU: 37172762888 Categories: ,

This has lovely, fragrant raspberry fruit and leaf aromas, opening up to wonderful savoury complexity and impressive concentration. Delicious, succulent, quite powerful yet silky-textured, this is a beautiful Margaux to enjoy now and over the next five years or longer. The Blason d’Issan label was introduced by Château d’Issan from 1995 onwards to enable greater selection amongst the property’s vines growing in the Margaux appellation area. Fruit from the younger vines is used to produce this wine, which respects the identity of its terroir, while offering a tasty round fruitiness, which can be enjoyed earlier than the ‘grand vin’. It is aged in barrels for 14 to 16 months, one third of which are new.
