Chateau D'Issan Margaux 2012
Not Vintage Specific
Wine Advocate 95
The 2012 Chateau d'Issan, builds on the richness of the second wine and adds more body, structure and density. It has an inky purple color and a stunning nose of spring flowers, blueberry and blackberry fruit as well as touches of incense and graphite. Medium to full-bodied and stunningly concentrated, this 2012 is a great success in the vintage, one of the superstars. Moreover, its precociousness suggests it could be drunk in the next 4-5 years or cellared through 2025. I underrated this wine dramatically in my report of April, 2013 (Issue 206).
Wine Spectator 89
This has a strong roasted alder note leading the way, followed by lively plum and red currant fruit. The tightly focused and energetic finish lets the sanguine and iron accents stretch out. A solid effort, with an old-school edge.
James Suckling 92
Complex aromas of black cherries with hints of cedar and spices. This is a full-bodied red combining firm tannins, good acidity and a clean finish. A fascinating iron undertone.
The more I taste Merlot Heavy 2012 Bordeaux, the more I enjoy them.. very good for the price, I hope Empire loads up, I'd definitely grab a case for the price..
