The 2015 Chateau d’Issan shows a medium crimson color with purple tints and is fresh, fruity and floral on the nose. It offers black currant and black plums aromas with pleasant hints of licorice. The tannins are round and soft. This wine is very structured and elegant and delivers a long as well as fresh finish. This wine is a blend of 65 % Cabernet Sauvignon 35% Merlot.
Very complex aromas of currants, blackberries and iodine with hints of dried mushrooms and flowers. Full-bodied, very fine and silky with a very, very long finish. Shows tension and finesse. Structured yet shows an ultra-fine texture. Deep, dense center palate, yet it’s all so polished. A wine for the future. Drink in 2022. JS 96
A blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon and 35% Merlot aged in 50% new and 50% one-year-old barrels for 18 months, the deep garnet-purple colored 2015 D’Issan simply sings with a beautiful perfume of wilted flowers, rose hip tea and mincemeat with a core of cherry preserves and blackberry tart plus a hint of underbrush. Medium-bodied, fine, fresh and elegant, it’s very soft and silky in the mouth with a long finish. RP 93
