Along with Châteaux Calon-Ségur, Latour, Léoville-Las-Cases and Beychevelle, Ch. d’Issan has a history of great wine-making dating back many centuries. Like them, it benefits from close proximity to the mild Gironde estuary. This wine came solely from the vines in the Clos around the château, where the wall dates back to 1644. Cabernet Sauvignon makes up 65% of the blend, with Merlot the balance, with 50% of the wine now ageing in new barrels. Only 47% of the production of the château has made it into this Grand Vin. The wine is outstanding : bright-purple-ruby in colour, with gorgeously fragrant, fine aromas. Palate is harmoniously structured, showing dense fruitiness, subtle tannins and exceptional, silky aftertaste (for drinking 2021-2035+).
