The vintages of Château Lamothe-Cissac Vieilles Vignes exhibit a deep purple red colour in the first years. Outstanding aromatic complexity with good integration of fruit and oak. Large spectrum of aromas: clove, spices and mild tobacco. Generous and elegant wine with long cellaring potential. Will improve with medium-term cellaring.

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 Vielles Vignes (old vines) cuvée was created in 1988 and is only produced in the best years in order to fully extract the power and concentration specific to the terroir. There are 10 hectares used for the production of the Vielle Vignes, and the average age of the vineyard is 65 years, with the oldest vines over 70 years old. There is a very low yield per hectare due to the age of the vines. The wine is 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot and 10% Petit Verdot.
