Along with the 2000, the 2005 is one of the two greatest d'Issans I have ever tasted. Kudos to proprietor Emmanuel Cruse for creating this beauty. Its dense purple hue is accompanied by aromas of camphor, forest floor, blackberries, cassis, and a hint of spring flowers. Full-bodied with superb richness, purity, texture, and abundant, sweet tannin, it should hit its stride in 3-4 years, and last for 25+. Bravo! Robert Parker

Really lovely wine. Typical of the vintage. Rich, silky and integrated.

I have had other bottles of this vintage of Chateau D'Issan that were superior. This particular bottle was weak and thin on the palate and nose This bottle showed nothing of the greatness of the 2005 vintage. It showed nothing of the depth of flavors I would expect. Hopefully an aberration.

Super tight, but slowly opened up. I'd sit in this for a while. Shows promise.

Very good Margaux, well integrated tannin, pretty blackberry and black currant fruits, spicy earth and tar on the nose.
