    THE STORY: Moulin D'Issan is a special cuvee from Chateau d'Issan, a renowned estate based in the Village of Margaaux. The grapes for Moulin d'Issan come from the historically owned vineyard that around the estate driveway: one side is in Margaux, the other a bit too close to the Gironde River to be called Margaux is classified simply as Bordeaux Superieur. Chateau d’Issan is one of the oldest wine producing properties in the Medoc as well as in all of Bordeaux. In 1152, the wine produced by what we know of as Chateau d’Issan today, was served for the royal wedding between Eleanor of Aquitaine and King Henri II. At the time, the estate was known as Chateau Lamothe Cantenac. This makes what we know of today as Chateau d’Issan, one of the oldest estates in Bordeaux that has continually produced Bordeaux wine in the appellation. In the late 1400’s the vineyards were known as belonging to Chateau Teobon. Jumping ahead a few centuries to the 17th century, the estate became the official possession of the d’Essenault family. The name, d’Issan is based on an early phonetic spelling of d’Essenault. d’Essenualt was a member of Parliament, a knight and the owner of Chateau d’Issan. He began an extensive program of rebuilding, renovating and redesigning the property. Eventually he built a new castle next to the vineyard and continued his construction projects until the French Revolution.
