Heiner Lobenberg über:
Chateau D'Issan 3eme Grand Cru 2018


Lobenberg: Archetypischer Margaux mit berauschender roter Frucht und geschliffenem Tannin, ziemlich perfekt und voller Harmonie. 2018 war DAS Jahr für d'Issan, ab 2016 wird es hier immer besser. Der Nachbar von Chateau Palmer, er brilliert mit einem durchaus ähnlichem Stil und man sollte d'Issan ab jetzt immer auf dem Schirm haben, die Weine werden immer besser. Finesse und Hedonismus. 96-97/100


Decanter über: Chateau D'Issan 3eme Grand Cru

-- Decanter: This is a vibrant ruby colour, with floral aromatics that are even more evident on the nose here than with the second wine, Blason. This is not always the case during En Primeur tastings, when it's the second wines that tend to be a little more open, but it's a feature of the 2018 vintage. This is a brilliant Issan with richness and poise joined by a delicate acidity that pulls the fruit along. The tannins are deceptive, as they are supple and appealing, but the density and power builds over the palate and clearly indicates long ageing. A wine that feels like it's rooted in its appellation. 50% new oak. 40hl/ha yield, with 53% of production going into this wine, higher than in both 2017 and 2016. Eric Boissenot consults. 96/100


Suckling über: Chateau D'Issan 3eme Grand Cru

-- Suckling: Aromas of blackberry, plum, cocoa, iodine, clove and graphite. It’s medium-to full-bodied with firm, silky tannins. Tightly wound and mineral at the moment, with dusty gravel and graphite notes, yet with focus and precision. Such balance and harmony for the vintage. Try from 2025. 96/100


Jeb Dunnuck über: Chateau D'Issan 3eme Grand Cru

-- Jeb Dunnuck: The top wine, the 2018 Château D'Issan is 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Merlot that spent 18 months in 50% new French oak. It offers a beautiful, singular bouquet of blackcurrants, new leather, smoked tobacco, scorched earth, and camphor. This carries to a medium to full-bodied, seamless Margaux with wonderful tannins, beautifully integrated acidity, and just a flawlessly balanced, elegant, layered style that's going to evolve for 20-25 years. It's one classy 2018 that has loads to love. 95/100


Parker über: Chateau D'Issan 3eme Grand Cru

-- Parker: The 2018 D'Issan is composed of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Merlot, aging in 50% new and 50% second year barrels for an estimated 18 months. With 13.97% alcohol and a deep garnet-purple color, it features baked berries, warm cherries and cassis with spice box and fragrant earth plus tea hints. Medium to full-bodied, it has a great core of muscular fruit with firm, fine-grained tannins, with nice freshness, finishing layered with mineral notions. 94-96/100


Wine Cellar Insider über: Chateau D'Issan 3eme Grand Cru

-- Wine Cellar Insider: Cherry blossoms, smoke, forest floor, licorice and blackberry aromas open the wine. The wine is full-bodied, round, sweet, juicy and just a little bit spicy. You can feel the vitality in the ripe, red plums and black currants which accent the finish. From a blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Merlot, the wine reached 13.97% alcohol. The Grand Vin was produced using 53% of the harvest. The picking took place September 24 to October 11. 94-96/100
