Château d'Issan 2009, Margaux 3° Grand Cru Classé - Parker 93
Outstanding wine thanks to its fatness, its texture and its powerfull tannins. This vintage has a remarkable style and purity.
Wine Advocate (april 2010)
93 - 95/100
Drink 2015-2027; May 11 hail meant yield was just 35 hl/ha. We were shown a sarment with scars like machine-gun fire on one side and satin smooth on the other. Dark, intense nose. Very smooth and satin-like with the tannins extremely ripe underneath. Very similar blend to Blason, 40% Merlot, same as in 2005. Fresh and ripe and easy. With a nice kick on the finish. This should last a lot longer but its very much in the same style."
"Dense red, rich,, plummy black fruits, wonderful middle palate showing great structure over the lissom, fleshy fruit, lovely texture and very good tannins for the future. Drink 2015-28.". "
