Why We're Buying

Château d'Issan Margaux makes four wines, and none are more investment-worthy than its eponymous red blend. The flagship wine features cabernet sauvignon and merlot grown in clay subsoil for optimal freshness and vivaciousness. The result is the sixth most expensive wine in Margaux, according to Wine-Searcher.com.

Complex aromas of sweet tobacco, chocolate, cedar and plums. Undertones of blackcurrants and dark chocolate. Dense and tight with a beautifully and tightly knit palate, yet this shows so much intensity and length. Love the wet-earth and berry character on the finish. Give this three to four years to soften even if it’s fantastic already to taste.
