Something about Chateau Cissac 2010
Château Cissac is located right in the heart of the Médoc region. Its exceptional terroir adjoins that of the prestigious Saint-Estèphe and Pauillac appellations, extending over an area of around a hundred hectares. The soil is mainly sandy gravel on top of clay and limestone, and the vineyards occupy a single tract of land which is sheltered by the village of Cissac and the forests which surround it. In keeping with Médoc tradition, the vineyards are mainly planted with their traditional variety, Cabernet Sauvignon. This variety is ideally suited to the type of terroir in Cissac, where its strength and aromas can realise their full potential. Blended with elegant Merlots and spicy Petit Verdots, Cabernet Sauvignon produces wines that are particularly complex and expressive.
Blend : 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22% Merlot, 8% Petit Verdot

Tasted at the Crus Bourgeois 2010 tasting in London. The Cissac has a well-defined, delineated bouquet with blackberry, briary, crushed stone and tobacco notes. It is well balanced with graphite-infused black fruit, a touch of tobacco and impressive precision and length towards the finish. Very fine. Drink now-2018. Tasted September 2012.
This wine has always been popular in the English marketplace, but less so in the United States. The 2010 is a classic Bordeaux with hints of cedar wood, red and black fruits, new saddle leather and an attractive, spicy, earthy, character. The acids seem much sweeter than I remember from some of the vintages from 20 years ago, but the wine is round, generously endowed, well-made and medium-bodied. It should drink nicely for at least a decade.
Soft, smooth, easy drinking, medium bodied, classically styled, fresh wine with cedar, crisp, fresh cassis, earth and blackberry. With an hour of air, this drinks well young and can age for at least 5 or more years.
