Haut-Medoc AOC, Chateau Cissac (Grand vin de Bordeaux) Cru Bourgeois Superieur

Fresh and focused, with a core of black currant and black cherry fruit, set against a sanguine, iron streak. The finish is resplendent with bright, brambly fruit and spicy oak notes, whilst the tannins are firm, yet fleshy.

Château Cissac

Château Cissac is an attractive eighteenth-century charterhouse built, it is thought, on the site of a Roman villa. The property was created in 1899 through the merger of two estates in the village of Cissac, and Louis Vialard, the grandson of the original owners, restored and updated it in the 1940s. His granddaughter, Marie, now manages the château.

Vineyard The Cissac vineyard occupies a hundred well-sited hectares adjoining the Saint-Estèphe and Pauillac appellations. The vines are planted on typical Médoc gravel, and average thirty-three years old. A lutte raisonnée approach is adopted, in which chemical treatments are kept to the bare minimum.

Due to the relatively small scale of our cheese and condiment producers, occasionally some cheeses and condiments may be unavailable and we will have to substitute them with similar products. Please state in the notes on the Cart page, if you do not wish to have any substitutions.
