Tasting Note:

“Perfumed nose of violet and geranium with plum and blackcurrant notes. Fruity, lively and oh so generous and playful. Tannins coat the mouth fully but finely giving a chalky texture to the palate that stays the right side of being dry.” 93 Points, Georgina Hindle, Decanter

“This is an impressive wine. Dominated by Cabernet Sauvignon, it is full of black-plum fruits, rich tannins and great potential. The velvet texture brings out an opulent, succulent character that will remain as the wine ages. It needs to age, so drink from 2025.” 93 Points, Roger Voss, Wine Enthusiast

“This is a powerful Cissac with a dense core of purple fruit and graphite, as well as chewy tannins. Full-bodied. Rich finish. One of the best wines from here in years.” 92-93 Points, James Suckling,

“The 2018 Cissac has a nose with real gusto, featuring precocious blackberry, raspberry and cranberry fruit; cedar and graphite scents emerge with time. The palate is medium-bodied with saturated tannins framing dense black fruit laced with allspice and black pepper. I appreciate the energy of this Cissac and I believe it will age with grace. Excellent.” 90-92 Points, Neal Martin, Vinous

“The deep purple-hued 2018 Château Cissac offers up a youthful, unevolved, yet impressive style that carries medium-bodied aromas and flavors of black cherries, mulberries, toasted spices, cedarwood, and leather. Complex and beautifully balanced, with ripe, polished tannins and outstanding length, it needs just a few years of bottle age but should shine for 7-8 years or more.” 90 Points, Jeb Dunnock, Jeb
