A blend 41% Merlot, 59% Cabernet Sauvignon cropped at 42hl/ha the Blason d’Issan represents 47% of the crop. It has a ripe, crisp nose with blackberry, briary, wild hedgerow and a touch of graphite that is well-defined. The palate is medium-bodied with a grainy entry, low acidity, quite supple with a classic, leafy, Cabernet finish. Fine. Tasted April 2011. Neal Martin erobertparker.com

Starts off elegant and balanced, with blueberry and floral character. Full and silky. But turns chewy and mouth puckering. Very extracted. But will turn out really outstanding. Best from here in decades. James Suckling jamessuckling.com

A floral, perfumy style, with a range of red fruit-currant, cherry and raspberry-laced with pretty spice notes on the finish. —J.M. James Molseworth, winespectator.com

‘Final blend since Jan 2011.’ 35% new oak. Very dense and zesty on the nose. Lots of Cabernet influence and massively suave and good, though perhaps a little tiny bit of vegetation and sinew in here. Very polished and gorgeous. Very long. Extremely charming. jancisrobinson.com
