Tasting Note

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 youngest 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, and annual production is around 10,000 cases.

Press

  • 93/100 - This is so delicious now with plum, chocolate and hazelnut character. Full-bodied, layered and yummy. Round tannins are so integrated. Really hard not to drink now. So why not?

  • 91/100 - The 2015 Blason d'Issan is a superb second wine. Dark, powerful and enveloping, the 2015 has so much to offer in its fleshy, inviting personality. Dark plum, leather and cedar are some of the many nuances that flesh out in this resonant, super-expressive Margaux. I loved it. Drink 2020-2030.

  • 89-91/100 - The 2015 Blason d'Issan is a blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Merlot cropped at 40 hectoliters per hectare and represents 45% of the total crop. It has a bright, quite vivid bouquet with perfumed dark cherry and blueberry scents, a hint of pencil lead in the background. The palate is medium-bodied with a mineral-driven opening. Harmonious in the mouth and disarmingly silky in texture, do not let its second wine status get in the way of noticing the structure towards the finish. This is a very well-crafted Blason d'Issan that follows their very fine deuxième vins in both 2010 and 2012. Drink 2019-2030.
