Château d’Issan, located in the heart of the Margaux appellation, benefits from a prime location that contributes to the exceptional quality of its wines. The mild weather, influenced by the nearby sea and the Gironde Estuary, creates ideal conditions for vine growth. The vines receive meticulous care to ensure perfectly ripe grapes, with each plot managed independently to maximize its potential.

As a Third Growth in the 1855 Imperial Classification, Château d’Issan produces wine from old vines within the château's enclosure. The soil, consisting mainly of surface gravel over a clay subsoil, enhances the ripeness and freshness of the grapes, which are 65% Cabernet Sauvignon and 35% Merlot. This unique terroir imparts the wine with the characteristic exquisite bouquet of Margaux, as well as a remarkable suppleness, subtlety, elegance, and long aging potential.

 

"Dried oranges and plums with bark, mushroom and forest floor aromas that follow through to medium to full body with a dense finish and excellent energy. Spices such as nutmeg and sandalwood. Some chocolate, too. 57% merlot, 40% cabernet sauvignon and 3% petit verdot."
-James Suckling, 94 points

"Seductive aromatics, good balance running through the palate, this is enjoyable. Petit Verdot for the first time in the blend, from the Pontac-Lynch vines. This has some lovely depth and width through the palate, one of the better second wines. With the addition of new plots and new grapes, they did many more blending sessions than usual, to be sure especially, whether to add the 1% Malbec to the first wine (most of this info needs to be switched into the Issan entry). Young vines mainly in this wine, Merlot oriented. This year they added 7ha of vines."
-Decanter
