Tasting Notes from the Curator

Chateau d’Issan - Blason d’Issan captivates the palate with an intricate symphony of flavors and aromas. The bouquet opens with dominant notes of blackcurrant, supported by nuances of plum and cherry, accented with subtle hints of violets and roses. Secondary aromas reveal a medley of graphite, clove, tobacco, cedar, leather, and forest floor. The nose also detects fleeting hints of dark cocoa nibs, cigar box, and espresso, offering a complex profile that echoes the diverse Margaux terroir.

On the palate, the wine continues to impress with its layered complexity. Flavors of dark fruits—blackcurrant, plum, blackberry, and black raspberries—dominate, intertwined with earthy and woody notes like dark cocoa, cedar, and tobacco. Secondary flavors introduce warm spices, vanilla, and a refreshing hint of mint. The texture is defined by its medium-to-full body, silky tannins, and luxurious mouthfeel with a long and mineral-driven finish.

    The Wine of Kings

The Wine of Kings

Chateau d’Issan has storied roots reaching back to the 12th century when its wine was served at the wedding of Eleanor of Aquitaine and King Henry II. This historical connection with royalty has earned Chateau d’Issan the moniker “wine of kings.” Over the centuries, the vineyard has preserved this regal association, underscoring its commitment to excellence and tradition.
