Not the best vintage of d’Issan, but really good nevertheless. Very enticing nose of flowers and dark fruits, so Margaux. The mouth follows. Its a really classical claret with good acidity and works great with food. Its really good.

We had the 2012 Vintage on 3/5/22. The same night we had the 2005 Vintage. The 2012 was a weaker vintage. This wine shows that. Darker in color. Dark fruit and green tones. Just not a good wine.

Thick and chewy, almost needs food to moderate it’s power. Full-bodied and robust.

2012...Too young...Needs another 4-5 for oak to intergrate. Hope to get another and hold...Really good for the vintage though...

Drinking remarkably well for such a young wine. Juicy and balanced with a touch of cinnamon/ginger-bread. Delicious.

Absolutely lovely. Rose water. Silky. Light. Adorable. Fun. And rewarding. A cute and coy Margaux.
