At Goedhuis & Co we adore the wines made by Emmanuel Cruse of Chateau d’Issan. His wines are always among the top five wines made in the region of Margaux, and a joy to drink. This wine is a blend of 64% Cabernet Sauvignon / 36% Merlot. The 2016 has an exquisite bouquet, so characteristic of Margaux, a soft, silky texture and beautiful purity. There is an underlying power, yet the wine remains subtle and gentle on the palate. The word seamless springs to mind and I thoroughly agree with Neal Martin when he says “this is a beautiful d’Issan”.
