Nice and balanced Margaux. Third growth grand cru, but somewhat falling flat compared to all the huge 15 vintages. Still a beautiful pairing with our filet mignons at Picasso. — 7 days ago
Beautiful wine! 2009 Margaux from Château D'Issan ...even more enjoyable knowing that we have actually visited and toured the 15th century Château....one of the few actually surrounded by a moat!
Will post tasting notes soon, but this bottle opened up beautifully. 😀🍷🇫🇷 — 3 years ago
Color is just starting to turn but still dark plum on the edges. Nose is classic old world with dark fruit and a little fresh steak... In a good way. Taste is mellow and smooth with flavors a of cigar wrapper and black berries. Very light tannins. Lighter bodied. Drink the 2003's now. — 6 years ago
Black berries, licorice and floral notes. Soft texture makes room for medium tannins and a good finish. — 4 months ago
Much brighter than the 2009 chateau d'issan that we had. Good amount of fruit but not a fruit bomb. Good, tasty. More complexities than the Dissan. That one is much more dark. — 4 years ago
If the d'Issan was a treat this was...Utterly delicious, and from a larger format would've been sublime I have no doubt — 6 years ago
Delightful Bordeaux. Buy it if you see it. — 5 months ago
