Blason d'Issan, our second wine, was introduced from 1995 onwards to enable selection amongst our vines growing in the Margaux appellation area. Fruit from our youngest vines is used to produce this wine, which respects the identity of its terroir, while offering a tasty round fruitiness, which can be enjoyed earlier. Blason d'Issan is also aged in barrels for 14 to 16 months, one third of which are new.

The 2018 Blason d'Issan is a pretty rich, heady wine, just as it was in barrel. Dark-toned fruit, chocolate, leather and spice all flesh out in this juicy, flavorful second wine from Issan. Drink it over the next handful of years.

Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2018 Blason d'Issan is scented of earth, herbs, warm plums and cassis with tar hints. The palate is medium to full-bodied, firm and grainy with a lively backbone and savory finish.

The second wine of Château d'Issan, the 2018 Blason D'Issan is another one of the those great second wines that already offers pleasure. Lots of ripe black cherry and currant fruits as well as notes of cedary herbs and dried flowers emerge from the glass, and it's medium-bodied, with an elegant texture and plenty of classic Margaux complexity and nuance. It's ideal for drinking over the coming 10-12 years or so.
