Chateau D’Issan 2004

90+ points

Margaux, Bordeaux, France. 13%

Another fine attractive Margaux from 2004.  It’s raw still with quite separate oak, yet quite supple and drinkable.  Sweeter in style than many clarets the fruit is crunchy, fresh and Summer ripe.

With age I think this will be a particularly charming, fine and accessible claret.

(from a half bottle).
