Producer - Château Cissac

In 1895, Jacques Mondon, a lawyer in Pauillac, acquired several vineyards in the parish of Cissac-Medoc. He combined these different vineyards under the name of Château Cissac. In 1940 Louis Vialard inherited the property from his grandparents Mondon and he set about the task of restoring the vineyards and the outbuildings as well as the family home. Louis who is largely responsible for the excellent reputation of the Chateau died in 2009. He is succeeded by his daughter Danielle and grandaughter Marie. " The château is of a particular architectural style, 'Chartreuse' of the 18th century and is probably on the site of a Roman Villa.
