Wine Advocate (April 2011)

94 - 96/100

“ Emmanuel Cruse has done a superb job at this moated castle on the southern approach to the appellation of Margaux. The dense blue/purple-tinged 2010 reveals notes of violets, blue and black fruits, a striking minerality, excellent purity, texture and length, a medium to full-bodied mouthfeel and noticeable but sweet, well-integrated tannins. It should drink well in 5-6 years and last 25-35.”

Jeff Leve

"From a blend of 61% Cabernet Sauvignon and 39% Merlot, the Margaux wine will probably be aged in 55% new oak for close to 18 to 20 months. 2010, with its dark, inky purple accents stains the glass is it’s swirled. Oak, cassis, forest floor and graphite scents are on display with little coaxing, Offering a big mouthful of ripe cassis, vanilla, licorice and sweet tannin, there is a lot to like about this wine. More classic in style than 2009, 2010 is a little richer and more powerful than the 2009. Emmanuel Cruse feels the wine is one step up from the 2009. I agree. He added, “Even though the IPT levels are the same in both vintages, 2010 feels denser and offers more structure.” d’Issan is one of the Medoc properties with slightly lower alcohol levels in 2010, when compared with 2009. 2009 reached 13.9%. In 2010, the wine is at 13.7%."

92- 94/100
"A blend of 39% Merlot and 61% Cabernet Sauvignon, cropped between 27th September and 14th October at 42hl/ha representing 53% of the crop, clocking 13.7% and a pH 3.81. It has a tightly-coiled, mineral-rich bouquet with blackberry, wild hedgerow, a touch of blueberry and crushed violet. Good definition and very controlled. The palate is medium-bodied with firm tannins on the entry, a little earthy with some sous-bois and cigar box emanating from the ripe Cabernet, good weight but not overbearing towards the finish. Very natural. This is not a show-stopping wine, but a d’Issan that you will gladly have on your table and deserves several years cellaring."

Ch?teau Pontet Canet 2012, Pauillac 5? Grand Cru Class? - Martin 94-96

Once again, the château transcends the vintage and delivers a 2012 of remarkable purity and energy. Its definition and brilliance are absolutely fantastic, with a brightness of fruit and finesse of tannin which take it to the summit. Another landmark.

All the maturity of cabernet sauvignon is felt in the mouth with silky tannins that associates with the roundness of the Merlot . The palate is dense. A beautiful fruity length , this wine marks down by its balance and structure.

Ch?teau Montrose 2011, Saint-Est?phe 2? Grand Cru Class? - Parker 91-93 Château Montrose 2011, Saint Estèphe 2° Grand Cru Classé - MAGNUM - Parker 91-93

Exceptionally tannic, broodingly backward offering displaying a dense ruby/purple color along with a provocative perfume of crushed rocks, flowers, cassis, black raspberries, and blueberries. It continues to add weight and richness, good traits considering the substantial, forbiddingly high tannin levels and zesty acidity.

Ch?teau d'Oupia, Minervois - Les Barons 2014

“Wonderful blend of syrah, carignan and grenache with a reddish-black colour. (…) flawless structure with a light wood aroma (…) garrigue, peppermint and fresh, acidulous blackberry soften the strong tannins. With Marie-Pierre Iché’s personal touch, the baron becomes a prince.” (Guide Hachette 2017, vin remarquable)

50% Carignan, 40% Grenache noir, 10% Syrah
