The terroir around Lamothe Cissac has been famous for producing wines since Roman times. The property was bought in 1964 by Gabriel Fabre who totally replanted the vineyard and rebuilt the vathouse before handing over the reigns to his son Vincent in 1991. Located in the commune of Cissac, adjacent to Pauillac, the soil contains the high gravel content so favourable to growing wines in this region. The vineyards are planted with 58% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot and 2% Cabernet Franc and have an average age of 30 years. The wines exhibit a dark ruby colour in youth with 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 ageworthiness. Cellaring a few years will develop a complex mix of leather, undergrowth and smoky notes.
