Château d'Issan Margaux Red Bordeaux Blend 2010 (1500ml)

$159

A complete, medium to full-bodied, exquisite Margaux from this medieval, moat-encircled, compellingly beautiful estate in the southern Medoc... The deep, gravelly soils mixed with clay have provided extraordinary aromatics. The yields were ridiculously low... Production was small after the selection for the grand vin, and the result is a dense, purple-colored wine with beautiful aromatics of spring flowers, blueberries and black raspberries as well as hints of cassis, tar and charcoal. The wine is gorgeously pure, well-balanced, and soft enough to be approached in 4-5 years or cellared for 25-30. Robert Parker

An extremely elegant, medium body claret that is drinking beautifully at the moment. Blueberry and cedar stand out. A high class Margaux. And certainly a wine to buy by the case.
