Château Lamothe-Cissac, Haut-Médoc

Château Lamothe-Cissac, Haut-Médoc

An excellent château, owned by the Fabre family, situated between Pauillac and Saint-Estèphe. The blend is typical for the region usually 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot. Traditionally vinified and aged in oak barriques, 20% of which are new. Fine, aromatic, with a ripe cherry character enlivened by liquorice and vanilla. 'Now just showing some maturity (2006 vintage), the wine has dense tannins and a firm, dry character. It is concentrated, the black fruits laced with fruit skins and acidity.' 90 points from Wine Enthusiast Magazine .
