Tasting Notes

The 2005 d'Issan steps up to a whole new level compared directly with the 1995 and 1999. It is blessed with a very perfumed and pure bouquet with blackberry, wild hedgerow, briary and crushed violets. Real Margaux character emanates from the glass and all with excellent delineation. The palate is extremely well balanced with fine tannins and a beguiling sense of symmetry. Layers of black fruit, tobacco, graphite and sea salt fan out wonderfully on the long and precise, mineral-driven finish. The 2005 evidences the improvements made with the estate's new vinification cellar and it will continue to give immense drinking pleasure over two, probably three decades. Tasted at the d’Issan vertical held at the property.

Score: 92
