TASTING NOTES

"The 2012 d'Issan is dark and beautifully layered in the glass. Plum, crème de cassis, leather, herbs and cloves open up in in a silky, polished wine that impresses with its balance and overall poise. The d'Issan is a bit dark for Margaux, but that is a detail; the 2012 is a gorgeous wine in every way. The blend is 67% Cabernet Sauvignon and 33% Merlot. This is terrific showing from d'Issan and winemaker Eric Boissenot." Antonio Galloni, Vinous.com

"This is an excellent red now with sweet tobacco, truffles and berries. Full body, velvety tannins and a savory finish. This shows the Issan character of decadence and richness." JamesSuckling.com

"67% Cabernet Sauvignon, 33% Merlot. 50% new oak. Much deeper crimson than Blason. Again, slightly strange (oak?) note on the nose. Deep and concentrated, very Cabernet. Gentle and appetising. Good oak management. Long and good savour." JancisRobinson.com
