Château Cissac belongs to the Vialard family, and its reputation was built on the tireless work of Louis Vialard, who established the wine’s fame through the 1970s and 1980s. Situated in the northern-most Haut-Médoc appellation, this historic château dates from 1769. The soil in the vineyards is less diverse than in the Médoc, predominantly sandy, with gravel
On the bouquet it is all plum and raspberry, and on the palate there are layers of crème de Mure and cassis. The oak is quite restrained, with a softer, more elegant and lushly structured claret the result. Good – very good!
