Tasting Notes

The 2015 Cissac is a blend of 68% Cabernet Sauvignon, 27% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot cropped at 36Hl/Ha. It has a clean and fresh bouquet – lifted blackberry and wild hedgerow aromas, well integrated new oak and gaining intensity in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp acidity, quite fresh and detailed with a classic, graphite-tinged second half that begs you back for another sip. This replicates its satisfying performance at last year's Cru Bourgeois tasting. Tasted at the Oenoconseil tasting room in Bordeaux.

Score: 90

Tasted at the Cru Bourgeois annual tasting, the 2015 Cissac (which curiously I did not taste during en primeur) has a well-defined bouquet with lifted blackberry and undergrowth notes. I would have preferred more intensity but it is charming and precise. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, quite edgy in style with crisp tannins and vivid black, cedar-infused fruit toward the finish. Enjoy this Cissac over the next decade.

Warm spices and hints of mocha on the nose with a wealth of dark, ripe cherries and blackberries. The depth on the palate is impressive. Tannins are boldly stated and carve deep. Very satisfying power here. Try from 2022.
