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

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

Tasted at Chateau 61 CS 39 M, 18 months in French oak, 55% new. Deep inky purple, compact and youthful rim. Incredibly youthful aromas of violet, lavender, blackberry, blackcurrant, with a thyme, sage, and slightly minty undertone. Structured for a Margaux. Big tannin, med plus acidity, and med ful bodied. The palate shows cassis, floral, potpourri, lots and lots of dark fruits, graphite, and minerals with lift and freshness. Last very long. Tasted semi blind, guessed 2015 for its youthfulness. Jaw dropped when revealed. Testament to how the 2010 is going to become and the fact that this bottle hasn't left the chateau's cellar in 7 years! Put this away for 20 years if you have any senses. You'd be mad to open sooner! 93++

What better after a powder ⛷ day than a boeuf bourguignon and a 2010 D'Issan. This is a baby of a wine but oh so good right now. Deep dark fruit gives way to currant and coffee and chocolate. This wine is a pleasure to drink and one that keeps your sense on their toes -- asking questions. Which is good in life and wine drinking. I can't wait to open my other bottles as the years pass. As we close 2016, let's raise a collective virtual glass and take a moment to reflect on friends, family, health, good food and great wine. And most things from Bordeaux in 2010 are pretty good too...

Needs time but full of potential. A touch on the ripe side for me, but not baked or hot.

Expressive, perfumy attack. Violets, blueberries, sweet dark fruits. Ripe and soft tannin. Doesn't even need a lot of decanting. This Chateaux always does it for my palate. For a big vintage like 2010, this is very much accessible now like you couldn't believe. Strong showing tonight.

Beautiful complex nose on the 2010. Nice integrated tannins. Decanted for 2hrs. Will age very well.
