Well placed, close to Pauillac and Saint-Estèphe, Château Cissac produces a very rewarding, traditional-style claret. Put your bottles away for a few years to allow it to develop. A fine Cru Bourgeois that consistently outperforms its classification.
It means reserving the latest vintage before it is bottled. By paying an instalment 'up front', you reserve wine while it is still in the barrel, before the wines are shipped to the UK up to 18 months after being reserved, depending on the region.
The advantages of ‘En Primeur’ buying
Demand for fine wines is always high as there simply isn’t enough to go around. En Primeur guarantees you an allocation of the finest wines – providing you are quick!
How does payment work?
Now you need only pay the ‘cellar door’ price. Prior to delivery, we will invoice you for the second instalment (duty – around £2.23 a bottle at today’s prices) plus VAT on the total. Delivery (currently £7.99) is also applicable, unless you are a member of Unlimited. Alternatively, you can keep your case stored In Bond or Duty Paid in our state of the art temperature- and humidity-controlled customer storage facility (currently £12.60 per case per year).
After placing your order we will sent you a Reservation Certificate to your billing address. If the wines you have chosen are sold out we’ll contact you to advise which are still available.
Beyond the Label
Firm tannic framework with dense black fruit, herbal and olive tones
Close to Pauillac and Saint-Estèphe, in the northernmost part of the Haut-Médoc, Cissac is a well established estate dating back to 1769. Its wines today are well loved by customers for being good value, traditional in style, with lovely depth and that will reward cellaring. It has been in the Villard for generations, but it was Louis Villard, who inherited it in 1940 and really brought about a step change, firmly establishing the château name with quality. His daughter Danielle later took charge and today it is his grand daughter, Marie, at the helm. With a high proportion of Cabernet Sauvignon, with Merlot and Petit Verdot, this firm, yet elegant red is aged in barriques, 40% new. A red that needs time to develop. Will reward patience.
"With blackberries, black olives and some herbal undertones. Should fill out with the elevage"
