We have been followers of Chateau Cissac wines for many years and in that time witnessed how well they age. They are beautifully made and offer some of the best value in Bordeaux. Cissac is undoubtedly "the pillar of the bourgeoisie" as Hugh Johnson has dubbed it.

The wines are traditionally deep coloured. 75% of the wine is Cabernet Sauvignon providing unmistakable, textbook aromas of cassis and pencil shavings and a firm, mouth-filling structure. Merlot and Petit Verdot add plumpness and complexity in what is a most elegant, classic Medoc. The wine is aged for up to 20 months in barrels with 40% new wood. 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot

The Château Cissac vines are situated on a plateau with a soil composed of gravel deposits from the Garonne River from the GunzDMindel period. It is located at an altitude of 27.5 m, equivalent to the highest points of the neighbouring appellations, Saint Estèphe and Pauillac.

Benefiting from new investment and the respectful but enlightened approach of the younger generation, the usual two thirds cabernet sauvignon here was carefully judged to produce a classically-proportioned Claret with balance, freshness and finesse, all at a very modest price.

Tasting Notes by Laurent Saint Pasteur, technical director
The promising, strong garnet colour with violet highlights is confirmed by the bouquet and the palate. A fine wine, complex and delightfully voluptuous on the palate, with a substance that promises a long ageing capacity, and a remarkable balance between strength and harmony. The finish is dense and complex.
