Château d'Issan, Margaux, 3ème Cru Classé, Bordeaux, 2012
Drinking Window: 2016 - 2025
Lovely deep colour and beautifully fragrant and pure nose, a classic “feminine” Margaux of great class.

Drinking Window: 2020 - 2040
Sexy, spicy, gourmet aromatics on the attack, turning fleshy through the palate. This has a lot to enjoy, it maybe won't age quite as well as the 2011, but a definite one to note for enjoyment over the next decade. You can begin drinking now, enjoying the many rich raspberry and bilberry flavours, with smokey tobacco edging.
