Tasting Notes

Goedhuis,

With all the supplementary work in the vineyard that this past vintage demanded, 2007 became themost expensive vintage that d'Issan ever produced. This extra attention to detail is apparent inthe wine. Fleshy with an ample palate of sweet blueberry and crunchy black cherry, this 2007 further offers notable freshness and a zesty salty tang finish. Quite a succulent Margaux that should be approchable early yet will have some structure for a bit of ageing. Drink 2010-2018

Producer

Château d'Issan

Many collectors view this château as well worth its status... and they are not alone. For centuries, d'Issan has been a coveted treasure. According to local lore, it was served at thewedding of Eleanor of Aquitaine and Henry Plantagenet as well as a favourite of Emperor François-Joseph of Austria. Since 1945, the property has been owned by the Cruse family with Emmanuel Cruse at the château's helm.

Region

Margaux, Red Bordeaux

Plump, silky and seductive are the words often used to describe wines from Margaux. Because of their style, they tend to be user friendly and more approachable when young. This is in part due to its terroir which is comprised of the thinnest soil as well as the highest proportion of chunky gravel in all of the Médoc. It drains well but also is it more susceptible to vintage variation. Margaux wines tend to have the highest proportions of Merlot within the core of the Médoc further adding to their ample roundness and openness. Margaux is home to the largest number of classified growths including its namesake first growth, Château Margaux, as well as third growths, Palmer and d'Issan.
