About:  Château Cissac is located right in the heart of the Médoc region. Its exceptional terroir adjoins that of the prestigious Saint-Estèphe and Pauillac appellations, extending over an area of around a hundred hectares.

The soil is mainly sandy gravel on top of clay and limestone, and the vineyards occupy a single tract of land which is sheltered by the village of Cissac and the forests which surround it. In keeping with Médoc tradition, the vineyards are mainly planted with their traditional variety, Cabernet Sauvignon.

This variety is ideally suited to the type of terroir in Cissac, where its strength and aromas can realise their full potential. Blended with elegant Merlots and spicy Petit Verdots, Cabernet Sauvignon produces wines that are particularly complex and expressive.

Tasting Notes:  The first wine of Chateau Cissac.  This is a very accessible claret in terms of taste and price.  Savoury herbaceous red and black fruit, tobacco and spice on the nose.  Good cassis fruit intensity, well managed tannins and a balanced lean finish.  Perfect with red meats and roasts.
