Vineyard Notes

The wine is made from the old vines in the Château d’Issan enclosure in the middle of the Margaux appellation. The soil here is mainly made up of surface gravel on top of a clay subsoil, which contributes to optimal ripeness and freshness in our two grape varieties, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Château d’Issan expresses the exquisite bouquet so characteristic of Margaux, and stands out with its suppleness, subtlety, elegance and long keeping potential that come from its unique terroir.


Winemaking

Fermentation was traditional with very gentle pumping over to preserve the body and liveliness of the fruit. The three weeks maceration, followed by malolactic fermentation, allowed to transfer the wine into the barrels by mid-November.


Ageing

Château d’Issan is aged in barrels for 16 to 18 months, half of which are new.
