Château du Breuil 2012 - Château Cissac, Haut- Médoc

Out of stock

The opinion of the sommelier

It’s a very typical Cru Bourgeois that I chose this month. The robe is dark and deep. The nose is complex, with hints of spice, and is very promising. On the palate, I was impressed by its perfect balance and its amazing structure. The aromas of violet and red berries perfectly pair with the aromas of licorice, sign of delicate aging in oak barrels. A very refined Cru Bourgeois, quite classical in its structure but quite original in its aromas. 

 

Terroir

Château Cissac’s vines are located in the heart of Médoc not far from famous villages of Pauillac and Saint-Estèphe. Haut-Médoc terroirs are characterized by the graves, these big pebbles you can notice on the ground in many places in Bordeaux. Those pebbles keep sun’s warmth and give it back to the vines at night, hence accelerating ripening.

lecepage Grape variety

If cabernet-sauvignon and merlot are expected as there are some in almost all the wines in Bordeaux, the presence of malbec is a bit more surprising. Malbec used to be quite widespread in Bordeaux until the sixties. It’s used to give more structure to the wine thanks to its usually thin but abundant tannins.

lemillesime Vintage

2012 scared the winemakers as summer was quite wet. And when vines are wet, rot is usually not far down the road. Only one thing can reverse the trend : a lot of sun and heat. And that’s exactly what occurred in September : the vines dried and the grapes ripened perfectly and winemakers were eventually relieved when they harvested amazing grapes. 

lerecoltant A winemaker, a family

Chateau Cissac is so obviously located on an amazing terroir that vines were already planted there during Antiquity. Indeed, the castle was built on the ruins of a Roman Villa that was surrounded by vines ! Nowadays, Marie Vialard runs the estate and make everything she can to respect and honour this riche legacy.
