Wine AdvocateNow consistently one of the great wines of the appellation, d'Issan has produced a dense purple-colored wine with a beautiful set of aromatics offering a smorgasbord of aromas such as perfumed flowers, incense, graphite, licorice, blueberry, and black currant. The wine is seamlessly constructed, like a fine dress from a haute couture house. With fabulous concentration of fruit, the ethereal elegance and sublime character of this wine make it seem to almost float across the palate with substantial flavor penetration and laser-like focus. This is a gorgeous example of 2006 that can be drunk in 3-4 years or cellared for over two decades. Good value.

Wine EnthusiastAn intense, tight wine, with stalky black currant fruit. It exhibits delicacy and elegance rather than power. Fresh fruit with an attractive smoky element make this a wine that is going to develop further, and it has a fresh, vibrant finish.

Wine SpectatorAromas of blackberry jam and dried flowers lead to a full body, with round, velvety tannins and a medium finish. Needs just a touch more richness to be outstanding. A nicely crafted wine for the vintage. Best after 2012. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.
