Chateau Cissac Cru Bourgeois Haut-Medoc 2018

Classic and elegant Cru Bourgeois showing dark
chocolate and beautifully balanced cedar notes and with
a fine, long finish.
Producer Note
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.
Vineyard
The vines of Château Cissac are situated on a plateau with a soil composed of gravel
deposits from the Garonne river from the Bunz-Mindel period, over chalk. It is located at
an altitude of 27.5 metres above sea level, equivalent to the highest points of the
neighbouring appellations, Saint Estèphe and Pauillac. Integrated pest management
takes place throughout the vineyard, along with leaf thinning mechanically and
manually in part of the vineyard, tillage of the soil and the planting of grass cover
between the vines.
Winemaking
Fermentation took place in both stainless steel and wooden vats, which brought out
the best in each parcel of fruit, imparting subtle oak complexity. Exceptionally low
fermentation temperatures resulted in good extraction while preserving the vibrant fruit
and natural sweetness from the ripe berries. The wine was aged for 16 to 18 months in
oak casks, of which 30% was new French oak.
Tasting Note
Aromas of ripe blackberries are complemented by a hint of spice from the Petit Verdot.
The ripe, firm tannins are balanced by freshness on the palate, through to a long,
elegant finish.
