In 1895, Jacques Mondon, a lawyer in Pauillac, acquired several vineyards in the parish of Cissac-Medoc. He combined these different vineyards under the name of Chateau Cissac. In 1940 Louis Vialard inherited the property from his grandparents Mondon and he set about the task of restoring the vineyards and the outbuildings as well as the family home. The château is of a particular architectural style, “Chartreuse” of the 18th century and is probably on the site of a Roman Villa. Vinification: Fermentation at 28/30C lasting an average of 5 weeks. Ageing:18/20 months in oak casks; 30/40% of the wine is aged in new oak casks each year

Condition

Excellent - well stored in a single cellar since original purchase.

Reviews

*** 16/20 - Jancis Robinson ***
Bright purple. Quite gassy at this stage but very lively and much suppler than the old style Cissac. Lift and even a bit of feminine grace! Aérien even. Good wine, though longstanding fans may be puzzled by it.
