CHATEAU CISSAC 2017 CRU BOURGEOIS 13% 75CL
Château Cissac is a stylish classical claret: a smooth texture with rounded tannins and a well-balanced blend of fruit and spice flavours. 2017’s vintage is a blend of 66% Cabernet Sauvignon, 29% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot. The Cissac vines are situated on a plateau with a soil composed of gravel deposits from the Garonne River from the Günz-Mindel period. Its altitude of 27.5m is equivalent to the highest points of the neighbouring appellations of Saint-Estèphe and Pauillac. Marie Vialard, manager of Cissac, describes 2017 as “a year of living dangerously”; her vines were slowed slightly by a hard frost in late April, before quick and even growth in late spring and during the hot summer. Careful selective harvesting then took place amidst high temperatures, which resulted in wonderfully ripened grapes. Laurent Saint Pasteur, technical director, opted for a vinification with extractions at low temperatures with long macerations: this year’s wine is opulent, well-rounded and succulent. Pure velvet.
