Only 57% of the production made it into the 2011 d'Issan which tips the scales at a lofty 13.2% natural alcohol. A blend of 69% Cabernet Sauvignon and 31% Merlot it possesses a dark ruby/purple color as well as a classic Margaux perfume of sweet blueberries black currants spring flowers and licorice. Ripe and deep with impressive intensity it is one of the stars of the 2011 vintage. The wine's silky tannins fresh acids and stunning length suggest it will drink well for 15-20 years. Kudos to proprietor Emmanuel Cruse.

60% cabernet sauvignon and 40% merlot. Aged in 50% new oak. 53 hectares of 35-year-old vines grown on gravel soils. Beautiful ruby color throughout this elegant Margaux. Inviting aromas of red currant are followed by... 60% cabernet sauvignon and 40% merlot. Aged in 50% new oak. 53 hectares of 35-year-old vines grown on gravel soils. Beautiful ruby color throughout this elegant Margaux. Inviting aromas of red currant are followed by semi-sweet chocolate and tobacco. Medium-bodied with some grippy tannins toward the finish. I really like the overall mouthfeel and drinkability of this young D'Issan though it will benefit from at least a few years in the cellar. Enjoy 2015-2025.
