As I wrote about way back in Issue Thirty-Four, the 2008 Château d’Issan is an excellent example of this outstanding and truly underrated vintage, and this most recent bottle showed even better potential than the bottle I sampled back in Bordeaux in preparation for that article. The bouquet is deep, pure and utterly classic in profile, offering up a fine mix of dark berries, cassis, cigar smoke, gravelly soil tones, fresh herbs and a nice framing of new wood. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, nascently complex and beautifully structured, with a fine core, suave tannins and excellent length and grip on the focused and properly reserved finish. This will be every bit as fine as the more highly-touted 2009 d’Issan and is one of the great sleepers of this excellent year. (Drink between 2020-2060) 93+ (5/2014)

The beautiful moated Issan Château is producing better wine every year. This 2008, from a vineyard that was badly hit by hail that year, has an elegance and style that is very much in keeping with southern Margaux. There is also a fine balancing density, sweet plum fruit and, with its fine tannins, great aging potential. *Cellar Selection* (RV) (12/2010)
