Château D’Issan, the legendary Bordeaux estate in Margaux, has perhaps the best logo ever put on a bottle: Regum Mensis Aris Que Deorum, which in Latin means: For the table of kings and the abode of the gods. The wine has a long and prestigious history: Henry II and Eleanor of Aquitaine poured the wine at their wedding in 1152. The Château is ranked as a Troisième Cru (3rd Growth) in the Bordeaux Classification of 1855. In more recent times, the Cruse family, a renowned name in Bordeaux, has taken over the estate; under their care, the winery has enjoyed a remarkable renaissance.

Château d'Issan has 44 hectares of vineyards planted to 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Merlot on gravel with clay and limestone soils on gentle, rolling slopes. The wine is vinified parcel by parcel in temperature controlled stainless steel vats of varying size, and then aged in 50% new French oak for an average of 18 months. This is one of the legendary estates of Margaux and an excellent example of its character and style.
