A great vintage for the Bordeaux region, 2018 will be remembered at Château d’Issan, a magnificent Grand Cru Classé of Margaux.
Following a rainy winter and spring, a beautiful summer settled in towards the end of June, with radiant sunshine that lasted until the date of harvest. These conditions favoured the perfect ripening of the fruit, which showed a quality similar to 2009. Beginning on September 24 and ending on October 11, the harvest took place under the best conditions. The grapes were small in size, with thick skins, rich in anthocyanins, with generous fruity flavours and refined tannins. The winemaking was carried out in a way that respected the fruit, with very gentle pump-overs. Once the blends were assembled in mid-January, the results were unanimous: the Château d'Issan 2018 revealed the signs of being one of the great vintages in the history of the property.
Blending Cabernet Sauvignon (60%) and Merlot (40%), the Château d'Issan 2018 seduces with its intense aromas and precision. Each grape variety brings a touch of personality to this wine. A magnificent vintage of Château d'Issan, which reminds us of the exceptional 2016.
