"The estate’s team, together with Eric Boissenot were present when the vintage was blended on 6th January, and the result is a true revelation. With its subtle aromas and moreish fruit, the 2020 vintage is a fine expression of the quintessential Margaux terroir. Precision combines with elegance to reveal an explosion of flavour. Its delicate, harmonious tannins envelop the palate, then give way to a long, hedonistic finish. What a sumptuous vintage!"

- Winemaker's notes

"Extremely floral and fruity with currants and blackberries. It’s full-bodied and very layered with delicious, dense character. Full-bodied with dusty, layered tannins. Rich, but not heavy. Long and chewy on the finish. 55% cabernet sauvignon, 39% merlot, 3% cabernet franc, 2% petit verdot and 1% malbec."

- James Suckling, 97 - 98 Points

"This is a sinewy, powerful and forward-moving wine with a sense of momentum. Moreish, with the elegance and plump damson fruits that Issan delivers so well, but more muscular than some years with the impact of both Petit Verdot and Malbec that are in the blend for the first time in this vintage. These add layers of spice and the overall architecture is clear. Peony and violet notes add a kick upwards on the finish, this has a delicacy even though it is intense. Less Cabernet in the blend in 2020 than in 2019, as is often the case in the Médoc due to low yields. This new blend in Issan will be seen going forward after the addition of plots from the purchase of Château Pontac-Lynch."

- Jane Anson, Decanter, 96 Points

"55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 39% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc, 2% Petit Verdot, 1% Malbec (the latter three from parcels of Pontac-Lynch acquired in March 2020 – the Petit Verdot planted in 1948). 45% of the production. Cask sample. Classic Issan but with more aromatic complexity and a tad more length. Intense, floral with smooth, elegant tannins and balancing freshness. Persistent finish. (JL) 13.3%"

The Producer

"Château d’Issan is in the middle of the Margaux appellation, a truly privileged location, which explains the outstanding quality of its wines. The mild weather, regulated by being close to the sea and the Gironde Estuary, provides ideal conditions for vine growth.

The soil is made up of mounds of gravel and 15-metre (50-foot) high alluvial hills, rounded by erosion. ... read more
