Château Cissac Jeroboam, Haut Medoc, Bordeaux, 2015
68% Cabernet Sauvignon, 27% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot
Another very good Haut-Médoc with ripe red fruits, some real concentration, moderately dry tannins and crisp acidity. Enjoy now or at any other time during the next few years.
"Tasted at the Cru Bourgeois annual tasting, the 2015 Cissac (which curiously I did not taste during en primeur) has a well-defined bouquet with lifted blackberry and undergrowth notes. I would have preferred more intensity but it is charming and precise. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, quite edgy in style with crisp tannins and vivid black, cedar-infused fruit toward the finish. Enjoy this Cissac over the next decade. Tasted September 2017." Neal Martin 90/100 robrtparker.com
"Dark crimson. Very classic savoury nose. Mid weight with lift on the end. No suggestion of sweetness or charm, but this should really appeal to classicists in search of a good-value alternative to St-Estèphe. Just slightly stringy on the end." 16+/20 Jancis Robinson
