Critic Scores, Reviews & Descriptions

93-94 JS / 92 DE / 89-92 VM / 88-90 WA

Very intense and tannic with a compact palate of blue fruit, such as blueberries. Full-bodied. Tight and powerful at the finish. - James Suckling

What a great second wine - heavy on the fruit aromatics, and with a striking richness through the palate. It's concentrated, though you almost don't realise it. The tannins - like so many in the Médoc in 2018 - are pretty supple, almost surprisingly so, and really cradle the brambly fruit even at this early stage. You feel, as you do in so many years here, that there's a true link in character between this and the grand vin. Harvest ran from 24 September to 11 October, giving a 40hl/ha yield with 47% of production going into the second wine. They managed to control the mildew through selective treatments, and their vineyard is in two big blocks so it's easier to get around. They are also keen to point out the hard work of new vineyard manager Olivier Challou, who has joined the estate from Ducru Beaucaillou. 35% new oak. 3.76pH. - Jane Anson, Decanter

Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2018 Blason d'Issan is scented of earth, herbs, warm plums and cassis with tar hints. The palate is medium to full-bodied, firm and grainy with a lively backbone and savory finish. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown,Wine Advocate

The 2018 Blason d'Issan is dark, inky and voluptuous, with an almost shocking level of density for a second wine. Supple fruit and silky tannins add to the wine's considerable appeal. The 2018 is racy and pliant to the core, not to mention an absolute delight to taste. Hints of lavender, spice and mint add brightness to the inky blue/purplish berry fruit.- Antonio Galloni
