Deep dark purple colour. Cool, classy nose with hints of violets and dark chocolate. Fine silky tannins. Good value earlier drinking Haut Médoc.
90 Points, Neal Martin: "Tasted at the Crus Bourgeois 2010 tasting in London. The Cissac has a well-defined, delineated bouquet with blackberry, briary, crushed stone and tobacco notes. It is well balanced with graphite-infused black fruit, a touch of tobacco and impressive precision and length towards the finish. Very fine. Drink now-2018. Tasted September 2012."
Located in the village of Cissac between St Estephe and Pauillac, Louis Vialard took over Château Cissac in 1940, dedicating himself to the property and its vineyards. Louis has now left the hard work to his talented daughter Danielle, inheriting the wine making traits of her ancestors, keeping the wine traditional but with a more modern approach and Marie, his grand daughter is closely following in her Aunt's footsteps.
