Château Lamothe Cissac - Haut-Medoc

Tasting notes

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.

    Onshore Cellars - ICONIC Producer

    The traces of a Roman villa discovered near the castle attest that the terroir was already recognized at that time for the production of quality wines.

    The story goes; Château Lamother-Cissac was lost and won at the Casino in Biarritz, and subsequently abandoned, until it was purchased by Gabriel Fabre in 1964. 

    The reconstitution of the property's vineyard and the reconstruction of the vat room were carried out initially. Vincent Fabre, his son, took over the management of the estate in 1991.
