($85) Good ruby-red. Currant and game on the slightly jammy nose. Sweet, rich and suave, with good intensity to the game, jammy fruit and nutty oak flavors. In a soft style, finishing with substantial ripe tannins.

Drink Dates 2011-2021

Fermentation takes place in temperature-controlled cellars for batches undergoing malolactic fermentation in barrels. The wine is aged for 18 months in 50% new oak barrels. Expansive nose, but rather more constrained on the palate. Good length, but not quite the weight to match it. Makes a lovely lighter style Margaux, though, and certainly has the flavour density to develop. (RH)

The more serious grand vin twin, the 2005 d'Issan, has a stunning nose of spring flowers, blackcurrant and blue/black fruits galore, and an impressively opaque dark plum/purple color. With a rich, concentrated and pure mouthfeel, wonderfully sweet tannin, full-bodied density and richness, but elegance in abundance, this is a stunner, and one of the great Margaux of the vintage. Drink it now and over the next 20 years.

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
