Château Lamothe-Cissac, Cru Bourgeois Haut- Médoc
A traditional style of Bordeaux that has elegance and savoury fruit in abundance. Exhibits a dark ruby colour in the first years. Aerating the wine displays a large spectrum of aromas: notes of red (blackcurrant) and jammy fruits associated with soft spices and subtle vanilla. Well-balanced palate with soft tannins and a very delicate finish. Excellent age worthiness. Drinking well now, and cellaring a few years will further develop.
The harvest is 100% destemmed. Modern temperature-controlled vats are used for fermentation which are perfectly suited for the vinification of fine red Bordeaux wines. Two or three times daily the wine is pumped-over to optimise the colour and tannin extraction from the skins. There is then a maceration of 4-6 weeks. Micro-oxygenation is carried out in Vat to improve the tannin structure and colour intensity.
