Third Growth of the 1855 Imperial Classification, Château d'Issan is made from the old vines enclosure in the middle of the Margaux appellation. With soil made up of surface gravel above a clay subsoil, this contributes to optimal ripeness and freshness of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grape varieties.

An excellent surprise, this wine reveals an exquisite bouquet, typical of Margaux, and expresses outstanding grace and elegance, keeping a potential that comes from its unique terroir.
