Merry Christmas. This wine is in such a perfect place. If I had a case I would drink them over the next year. So good!

The 2011 Chateau d’Issan is a glowing wine from what was a challenging vintage in Bordeaux. On the nose this takes on more fresh herbs with red bell pepper, anise and shades of wet asphalt. The palate is fresh and vibrant with great acidity. Medium-bodied with great finesse, this doesn’t have the weight of the 2010 but has some really nice aging potential. Drink 2021-2038- 91

Had this February 19th 2015. Vintage 2011, very young and from a .375ml bottle. Shows a lot of promise. Classic Margaux profile. Will love tasting this from a .750ml or larger when it's in its prime.

Dark plums, licorice, tobacco and rose fanée. Medium bodied and oh so elegant a wine. Wonderful on our tasting but no bottle left :( we loved it and are looking for more !

Way too pricy for 2011, too green.
