TN: 2003 Château d'Issan (France, Bordeaux, Médoc, Margaux)

  • 2003 Château d’Issan - France, Bordeaux, Médoc, Margaux (6/16/2012)
    Whoa, this wine completely comes out swinging…this is total nose candy…so sexy…an absolute provocative intoxicating perfume of lushious red fruits and velvety smooth coconut oil. The palate is total margaux-berries…supple, smooth. elegant, soft tannins. An absolute pleasure to drink and another reason why I keep Margaux on the top of my list of favorite communes. (92 pts.)

Nice note, Marc.

The last time I experienced a Bordeaux whose nose was as perfumed with warm coconut oil was an '89 Petrus. The nose on the d’Issan was superb.
