ABOUT THE WINE

Château Cissac is located in the northernmost part of the Haut-Médoc and its wine production dates back to the 1700s. It is owned by the Vialard family. Louis Vialard began making wine at the château in the 1940s and established the château's good reputation. Now, his daughter Danielle and granddaughter Marie oversee the winemaking. The 2017 Cissac is a medium-bodied, well-balanced wine that shows as a great example of premium Haut-Médoc wines. This wine was aged in about 30% new oak, and the few years of bottle ageing on this wine has helped integrate the oak into the structure. Classic, but by no means boring.

ABOUT THE WINE
ABOUT THE REGION

ABOUT THE REGION

Château Cissac’s vineyards neighbour the esteemed Saint-Estéphe and Pauillac AOCs. The soils are quite similar to
these prestigious appellations – mostly chunky gravel, with a limestone base. The gravel-rich soils are important in areas such as the Médoc that are also quite rich with clay. Cabernet Sauvignon thrives in these soils. The presence of the gravel ensures that the vineyards are naturally drained and do not get over-saturated with water. This increases the concentration of sugar and tannin in the grapes, which results in a more concentrated wine that has the potential to evolve over the years. In the vineyards of Château Cissac, vines average around 30 years old, which lends greater complexity to the wines.
