Tasting Notes

Vinous 94

The 2015 Chateau d Issan has an intense bouquet, even more than the 2010 when juxtaposed side-by-side, with multilayered black fruit, bilberry and light marine scents and hints of wild heather that I did not notice three years ago. The palate is beautifully balanced with very supple, lithe tannins. There is more red fruit compared to the 2010, with a little more sapidity. In fact, I suspect on this showing that the d Issan may ultimately edge ahead. This is very elegant and harmonious with an almost pixelated finish. [Neal Martin, 29/03/2021]

JancisRobinson.com 17/20

Tasted blind. Quite sweet, smoked hickory oak with punch and a bit of drama. Juice and attack. Just scrapes a 17. [24/01/2019]

Anticipated maturity: 2024-2040

Robert Parker 93

"A blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon and 35% Merlot aged in 50% new and 50% one-year-old barrels for 18 months, the deep garnet-purple colored 2015 D’Issan simply sings with a beautiful perfume of wilted flowers, rose hip tea and mincemeat with a core of cherry preserves and blackberry tart plus a hint of underbrush. Medium-bodied, fine, fresh and elegant, it’s very soft and silky in the mouth with a long finish." [Lisa Perrotti-Brown, 21/02/2018]

Anticipated maturity: 2020-2038
