Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot
75cl * 13% ABV * Bordeaux, France
The finest vintage of d'Issan ever? Perhaps. Margaux is famed for its enticing perfume and this certainly doesn't disappointed. The gloriously warm 2005 vintage and the 15 years of bottle age has resulted in notes of sweet currant, forest floor, camphor and spice. A dense and rich wine, undoubtedly, but still with enormous amounts of class. Claret really doesn't get better than this. A treat of a bottle for Christmas Day, Sunday lunch or a special occasion. Drink to 2030.
