Château Cissac Haut-Médoc
Cissac is still made in a traditional, firm Médoc style but it is very fairly priced and generally wellcrafted. But, although structured and austere when very young, it is increasingly rounder and suppler than of old with a little age. Wooden as well as stainless steel vats are used for fermentation and an increasing amount of new wood (30–40%) is used to age the wine. From the best vintages the wine is undoubtedly complex and harmonious but really needs cellaring for 8–10 years to show at its best. (DM)
