(93-95) Points - Wine Enthusiast
"Barrel Sample. This is a serious wine, with dense tannins and concentrated structure. It has strong wood and smoky bacon notes that need to harmonize with the dark plum flavor and ample acidity." -RV, 3/1/15

91+ Points - Wine Advocate
"The 2014 D'Issan has a crisp, pure bouquet, quite tight and reticent like the 2014 Marquis d'Alesme Becker, eventually offering blackberry, soy and cedar scents, almost Saint Julien in style. The palate is medium-bodied with a touch of herbaceousness on the entry, but there is plenty of fruit behind it. I like the classic style of this d'Issan, the pepperiness of the Cabernet driving the structured and quite masculine (for Margaux) finish. This is beginning to show the class that I thought it would and it may merit a higher score in the future." -NM, 3/31/17

91 Points - Vinous Media
"The 2014 d'Issan is plump, juicy and delicious. Torrefaction, smoke, licorice, plum, grilled herbs, leather and tobacco give the 2014 its racy, exuberant personality and considerable near-term appeal. This is an especially bold, rich Margaux, but it works nicely. Tasted two times." -AG, 2/2017

89 Points - Wine Spectator
"A charming style, featuring a light singed sandalwood edge to the mix of plum, bitter cherry and savory notes. Shows a flash of gunpowder tea on the finish, with a twinge of iron. Best from 2019 through 2024. 7,917 cases made." -JM, 3/31/17
