A great vintage from an excellent chateaux
Elegant and plummy with lovely blackcurrant fruit, classic cedar aromas and a hint of vanilla. This beauty is medium bodied with a long, lingering finish.

France - Bordeaux - Haut Medoc
Situated on the north side of the Gironde Estuary and in an area known as Haut-Medoc, this vineyard is situated inbetween two towns, St-Estephe and Pauillac. We don't have to tell you, this area is one of most renowned wine regions in Europe.
2010 was a great year for Bordeaux. Excellent to drink now if you like your Bordeaux brimming with fruit or put in the rack as this will keep for a good few years!
Chateau Lamothe-Cissac has been growing wine since the Roman times but when bought by Gabriel Fabre in 1963 had to be entirely replanted. As there were already 17 Châteaux bearing the name of Lamothe in Gironde at that time, Gabriel Fabre called his estate Lamothe-Cissac to avoid any confusion. His son Vincent tookover the estate in 1991.
The thirty year old vines produce fabulous grapes which are then blended and aged for twelve months in French oak.
This wine is a Cru Bourgeois. After some changes in recent years, only individual wines (not whole properties) can now receive Cru Bourgeois status. This classification is made as a result of blind tastings of submitted wines during the second spring after the vintage.
This wine will benefit from decanting which allows the air to reach the wine and allow it to develop and really come to life - quite simply it will taste better!
Size matters! Bear in mind this wine is a magnum - the equivalent of two standard 750ml bottles. As such it will age for longer than a standard bottle.
This wine goes brilliantly with grilled meat or equally as good with hard cheeses.
