Château Cissac 2016, Haut-Médoc Cru Bourgeois
£19.95 per bottle
"Another very good performance for this hugely popular Cru Bourgeois - a good, honest claret-drinkers' claret. Recent vintages here have an extra level of opulence and texture - and this could be better than the delicious 2015. Ripe and impressive with generous cassis fruit and good grip. Weighty, well-defined and great value."This is an excellent contribution to the vintage" Neal Martin. Drink 2023-2032
"A tight red with currant and plum character, a medium body, firm tannins and a fresh finish. Another solid red from here." Scores: 91/92 - James Suckling
Chateau Cissac is a family owned estate in the Haut Medoc appellation of Bordeaux. The Vialard family have owned the Chateau for five generations after Louis Vialard inherited it in 1940. Winemaker Laurent Saint Pasteur works alongside the family on the 65 hectare estate. The vineyard holds the traditional mix of grape varieties with 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot. Chateau Cissac strives to combine modernity and tradition and to ensure the the right balance is found between the two.
