    Both Jancis Robinson and James Suckling use the phrase " well done" in their notes on this excellent 2004 Margaux. Emmanuel Cruse opted for more Merlot than usual this year (40%) and this has produced a wine with lots of sweet dark fruit as well as that tell-tale Margaux finesse. Aged 50% in new oak this is one of the very best Margaux of the vintage. Drink 2010-2020

  • Robert Parker, June 2007, Score: 91

    A beautiful effort that is a model of elegance and symmetry, this 2004 d'Issan possesses a darkruby/purple color as well as floral, raspberry, cherry, and blueberry aromas interwoven with notions of licorice and toasty oak. Beautiful ripeness, medium body, and a delicate integration of tannin and wood result in a pure Margaux that should be at its peak between 2009-2020+.

  • Jancis Robinson, April 2005, Score: 17

    Very full and floral and opulent. Smooth and round. Tannins extremely well hidden. Well done! Some freshness too! Bit of an iron fist but a very attractive glove – rather Margaux actually. Fresh – quite notable acidity. Drink 2012-2020

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

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.
