About Chateau d'Issan:

The present-day chateau (surrounded by a moat) was constructed in the 17th Century; like so many Bordeaux estates, it was essentially in ruins after the First World War. Acquired by the Cruse winemaking family in the 1950's, the vineyards were extensively replanted and the estate restored to its former glory. It was declared a Third Growth Grand Cru in the 1855 Bordeaux classification.
