Château Lamothe-Cissac Cuvée Vieilles Vignes, Haut-Médoc

Château Lamothe-Cissac Cuvée Vieilles Vignes, Haut-Médoc

This special ‘cuvée’, produced only in years with highly favourable weather conditions, is made from grapes harvested in the oldest part of the vineyard, where the vines are on average over 60 years old: these old vines produce very low yields of highly flavoured grapes. A long maceration followed by 18 months in only new oak barriques results in this classic old-fashioned claret. Deeply coloured with a complex bouquet and rich, long finish.
