90 points "Intense aromas of blackberry tart with hints of rhubarb. Medium- to full-bodied, with soft tannins and a medium finish. This is really nice. Stylish wine. I like it better than the 2000. Best after 2008." Best 2008-

"A floral, elegant, graceful, classic Margaux, the 2001 d'Issan displays medium-bodied flavors (cherries, black currants, and acacia flowers), and an understated, restrained personality...Drink this pure, well-balanced 2001 over the next 12-14 years." Best 2005-2017
