2009 Chateau Cissac
A great example of Haut-Medoc from the much-lorded 2009 vintage. 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22% Merlot, 8% Petit Verdot. The Cabernet Sauvignon dominates, with aromas of blackcurrant and cedar, and a dense, mouth-filling structure. Full bodied, smooth, with fine dry tannin. Black fruit and leather on the palate. Good quality mature cheddar is a great match for this one.
