The vineyard of Château d'Issan is planted with vines around 40 years old and is worked in biodynamics.
After a manual harvest followed by a plot by plot vinification, Château d'Issan 2017 has been aged in oak barrels for 18 months.
With a blend dominated by 65% Cabernet Sauvignon and 35% Merlot, the 2017 vintage boasts a beautiful deep purple color with garnet highlights and distills an elegant bouquet of black fruits, crushed blueberries, black currants, and juicy black plums intermixed with floral notes of violets and a subtle hint of licorice.
On the palate, the 2017 Château d'Issan is moderately full-bodied with a mellow structure thanks to abundant, velvety tannin. The fruit present on the nose is perfectly retranscribed in the mouth and develops its aromas in the middle of the mouth, coating the tongue and the inside of the cheeks with fresh and ripe notes evolving slowly towards a remarkably long finish tinged with delicate spicy touches.
