The Château d'Issan 2016 presents a somewhat traditional bouquet that is initially reserved. However, on the palate, it showcases a medium body with crisp tannins and remarkable finesse. The wine exhibits good concentration and impressive clarity. It displays excellent balance, with a notable saline character and a finish that lingers with wonderful aromatic persistence and exceptional precision. The Medoc vineyards “enjoyed” continuous rain from 1st January to the beginning of June! The drainage work carried out in 1995 on the Chateau d’Issan estate, makes it possible to regulate the amount of water irrigating each plot. The vines’ roots reach down very deep, which makes their water supply regular. The rain stopped in the first week of June and flowering was uniform and abundant. The grapes are traditionally vinified, and the wine is then matured in oak casks (50% new) for 18 months. The wine is bottled unfiltered. ABV 13%
