The 2019 Cissac has an attractive bouquet with ample blackberry, briary and subtle violet scents, hints of citrus fruit in the background. The palate is medium-bodied with fine grain tannins, good acidity and gentle grip with a classic graphite-infused finish that lingers in the mouth. This is a very fine Cissac that will give up to 20 years of drinking pleasure. It should end up at the top of my banded score, though I would like more personality to develop.
Anticipated maturity: 2024-2040
