Merlot 70%, Cabernet Franc 17%, Cabernet Sauvignon 7%, Malbec 6%
This St-Emilion's upbringing is similar to that of a top red Burgundy, including a 7-day cold soak, fermentation in small tanks, malolactic in barrel, and ageing sur-lie. This highly-focused wine exhibits a deep ruby/purple hue in addition to a beautiful bouquet of black raspberries, blueberries, camphor, spring flowers, and spice box. Full bodied, with soft, round tannins and a very long finish.
This wine has a nice shiny red ruby colour with golden tints. The nose is clear, with a dominance of red fruit with white pepper and cinnamon notes. With a round and elegant mouth, red fruit and raspberry aromas are dominant. It is better to serve this bottle at room temperature to appreciate all the powerful aromas and the extreme fineness of its bouquet.
Cabernet Sauvignon 58%, Merlot 35%, Petit Verdot 5%, Cabernet Franc 2%
The vintages of Château Lamothe-Cissac exhibit a dark ruby colour in the first years. Aerating the wine displays a large spectrum of aromas : notes of red (blackcurrant) and jammy fruits associated with soft spices and subtle vanilla . Well-balanced palate with soft tanins and a very delicate finish. Excellent ageworthiness. Cellaring a few years will develop a complex mix of leather, undergrowth and smoky notes.
Robe : Ruby color with purple highlights
Nose: Aromas of red fruits very pronounced and a touch of liquorice.
Palate: Its attack on the palate is frank but without aggressiveness. Some aromas of blackberries and raspberries as well as a touch of vanilla woody.
