75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot with 14 months in barrel (30% new).
Plenty of juicy, chunky blackcurrant fruit, firm tannins and fine length. Classic Cissac.
"Showing more fruit and density than I found in previous vintages, Cissac’s 2012 from proprietor Vialard is a blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot and the rest Petit Verdot. Avoiding some of the austerity that this vintage can possess, this wine exhibits good minerality, a dense ruby/purple colour, some cassis, and surprising depth and ripeness, Drink it over the next 10+ years." Robert Parker 87+/100
