Château d’Issan is a 123-acre estate in Cantenac, Bordeaux. Seventy-four of the estate’s acres are in the Margaux appellation. It is a third growth estate according to the 1855 Bordeaux classification. D’Issan traces its history to the 12th century, but it was in the 17th century that an important Bordeaux politician named Essenault acquired the property and gave it his name. The estate name was later shortened to d’Issan. Since 1945 d’Issan has been owned by the well-known Cruse family of Bordeaux, which also owns Château Pontet-Canet, Château Laujac, Château Haut-Bages-Liberal and other Bordeaux estates as well as a negociant business. The vineyards are planted to 70% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Merlot. About 110,000 bottles of Château d’Issan are produced annually. The second wine is Blason d’Issan.
