Château Cissac Haut Medoc 2016
Classic Medoc from a classy producer.
Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot
What we say
Drinking deliciously now with plenty of fruit forward flavours, as well as cedar and tobacco. Enough structure to keep for a few years and age gracefully.
What they say
A bright garnet colour with hints of violet. Fine and complex with deliciously balanced flavours, which are both powerful and in harmony with one another. A complex and thick finish.
