The juice is fermented in huge wooden vats but is then aged in 225-litre oak barrels, 40% of which are new. With the vineyard established on a bed of gravel over a limestone base, it is unsurprising to see such a predominance of Cabernet Sauvignon and the style of the wine mirrors this, as it is made in a classic Medoc style.

The 2017 is a little lighter than these others, but if ever there was a benchmark / archetypal example of a “luncheon claret”, then this is it!
It is elegant, perfumed with cigar box, red berry, cassis liqueur, and sweet spice. The flavours are ripe and long, the structure fine-boned and wine is dynamic and pure. - Randall

"Commendable Cissac that makes the most of the vintage." 90pts. -

“A tangy and fruity red with chocolate, berry and currant character. Some orange peel. Medium body and a solid core of fruit. Fresh finish. Nicely done for the vintage.” 90pts -, JS and Neil Martin.
