Description

Chateau Lamothe-Cissac lies mere moments from the prestigious estates of Lafite and Latour, sharing their hallowed grounds and climate, only without the eye watering price tag they carry.

Dark garnet towards purple in color, with on the nose green pepper, foliage, cassis and tobacco. Medium, perhaps medium to full-bodied, with on the palate somewhat astringent notes of under-ripe black forest fruit, black tea, a touch of tobacco with medium-plus acidity and firm, searing tannins highlighting some notes of bitter chocolate on the moderately long finish.

Château Lamothe-Cissac is a distinguished wine estate situated in the Haut-Médoc appellation of Bordeaux, France. With a history dating back to the 16th century, the estate is known for its commitment to crafting high-quality red wines that exemplify the classic Médoc style. Spanning approximately 40 hectares, the vineyard benefits from gravelly and clay-limestone soils, ideal for nurturing Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Petit Verdot grapes. Château Lamothe-Cissac's wines are characterized by their depth, complexity, and elegance, with ripe fruit flavors, integrated tannins, and a distinct sense of terroir. Under the guidance of the Fabre family, who have owned the estate since 1998, Château Lamothe-Cissac continues to uphold its reputation for producing exceptional wines that reflect the heritage and tradition of the Haut-Médoc appellation.

***89 Points Neal Martin for the Wine Advocate***
The 2014 Château Lamothe Cissac has a clean, understated but precise bouquet with black fruit, cigar box and cold stone aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp tannin, fresh and lively with lovely blackberry and cassis fruit infused with minerals on the sustained finish. What a delightful Haut-Médoc! Worth seeking out. Tasted September 2016.
