Château d’Issan is in the middle of the Margaux appellation, a truly privileged
location, which explains the outstanding quality of its wines. The mild weather,
regulated by being close to the sea and the Gironde Estuary, provides ideal conditions
for vine growth. It is classified as a third growth in the 1855 Classification of
Bordeaux.
Blason d’Issan, the second wine, was introduced from 1995 onwards to enable
selection amongst our vines growing in the Margaux appellation area. Fruit from our
youngest vines is used to produce this wine, which respects the identity of its terroir,
while offering a tasty round fruitiness, which can be enjoyed earlier. Blason d’Issan is
also aged in barrels for 14 to 16 months, one third of which are new. Annual
production is around 120,000 bottles.

“Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, the 2016 Blason d'Issan features cassis, plums and earth on the nose with an undercurrent of bay leaves and tobacco. The palate is medium to full-bodied, firm and grainy with good concentration and length”
