Deep purple, almost opaque robe, the nose is full of charming ripeness. A delicious compote of blackberry and black cassis fruits balanced with a delicious blueberry freshness.
"Tannin concentrations are associated with colours of rare intensity, while the Cissac terroir has maintained sufficient acidity to deliver an overall balance. 2022 is a vintage of true depth and richness! The grape harvest began on 15th September, which is early but not exceptional. The Merlots combine freshness with exceptional maturity. The maturity of the Cabernet Sauvignons has benefited from these September conditions, delivering a tannic structure which is overlaid with a full-bodied delicacy. The Petits Verdots are full-bodied and refined, with exceptional depth. The Malbecs have adapted superbly to warmer climatic conditions, as in 2018, with a richness and freshness accompanied by notes of spice." Laurent Saint Pasteur, technical director, Château Cissac
