The 2010 vintage of Chateau d’Issan 2010, classified under the Margaux appellation, appears as concentrated as the 2009, but with a vivacity, a fresh aroma and a much higher degree of richness. This great wine of the Margaux appellation presents a subtle and deep nose. The attack on the palate is broad and generous. This wine is ample, bold and powerful, while maintaining a beautiful elegance and a coated finish typical of the great Margaux wines.
The wine is deep in color, with a lovely tint of garnet. The nose is complex, its numerous traits dominated by a note of fresh black fruits (blackberries, black cherries) but also with an elegant floral touch. The attack is gentle and supple, full and generous in the mouth thereafter, and finally yielding truly voluptuous sensations in a very long finish.
The 2009 Ducru-Beaucaillou boasts a beautiful deep violet robe. In the mouth, it exhibits a thick and luscious structure, as well as dense, albeit velvety and elegant, tannins. Its fruit is at once rich and dazzling and its finish silky smooth and wonderfully persistent.
The legendary vintage of 2000 has a young deep crimson colour. The nose offers opulence and concentration with intense aromas of plum, blackberry, red pepper and violets. This wine needs substantial aeration to develop its richness and complexity with an elegant minerality. This balance remains very persistent in the mouth.
Chateau Grand-Puy-Lacoste 2008 presents an intense ruby red color. On the nose, it offers blackberries aromas dominated by the cassis. In the mouth, this wine has a great aromatic attack with a lot of texture and fruits. Its breed is evident in the splendid length of the finish. Its shows already great balance and style, but it will need time to age to express all its charm.
The 2007 Grand-Puy-Lacoste has a bright ruby red color. On the nose, this wine presents a wonderful aromatic complexity with a touch of black berries and cherry aromas trimmed with spices, vanilla and liquorices. On the palate, this velvety, well concentrated wine shows a nice fruit extract. It is a very charming wine with silky tannins and beautiful harmony.
Beautiful color, very deep with a mixing of the Haut-Brion ruby and its purple-violet shade of youth. Swishing the wine around in the glass gives a notion of its density. This complexity is followed up in the aromas that suddenly burst forth all at once: a woody hint of fine polished oak, mulberry jam, cherry pits, a touch of blackcurrant, and the bittersweet of mango. One discovers this complexness again with even more violence in the mouth. The specific notes of this vintage: the finesse of mocha, the toasted trace of praline all join with the above, melding together with tannins of great complexity and softness. The finish is never ending… Exceptional bottle. To be drunk today, tomorrow and surely even 100 years from now.
Dense ruby/purple, with notes of creosote, spring flowers, blueberry and blackberry fruit, this is a rich, medium to full-bodied wine with loads of character and depth. It is usually one of the better values of Bordeaux and it certainly stands out as a major sleeper of the vintage. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2025.
Beautiful very dark colour. Discreet nose with primary notes that develop in fullness and density. Quite powerful on the palate with very good structure and a nice tannic finish with well-integrated woody notes.
Wine garnet-red color. Soft and full taste of the wine shows a pleasant acidity and well-balanced silky texture. The aroma of wine combines delicate shades of currants, cherries and plums, gentle tone of sweet spice and leather. Wine is served to the game and poultry, is well suited to red meat and grilled meat, it is recommended in combination with cheese.

2008, the great classical latecomer !
The fully mature 2001 exhibits aromas of tapenade, bay leaf, licorice, red and black currants, damp earth and new saddle leather. Medium-bodied and atypically elegant and charming for a Lynch Bages with soft, fully resolved tannin and a moderately long finish, it is much lighter than a great vintage such as 2000.
“Robert Parker Jr “
The medium-bodied 2011 Lynch Bages possesses a saturated ruby/purple color as well as beautiful creme de cassis notes, a generous, concentrated, well-made, medium to full-bodied style and supple tannins. A successful effort in 2011, it should be drinkable in 3-4 years and last for 15+. It is a sleeper of the vintage.
