Expert Reviews

87-89 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - April 2013

Bright red-ruby.  Subdued but pure nose offers blueberry, violet, licorice, menthol and grilled herbs. Enters the mouth fresh and clean, then turns austere, with nicely integrated acidity framing delicate dark berry and herbal flavors.  Finishes firm and fresh, with fine-grained tannins and a hint of herbaceousness.  A juicy, brisk, classic Bordeaux red with no shortage of energy and lift.  I'm always a big fan of Issan, but I wonder if this vintage's relatively modest quantity of ripe fruit will last.
