Chateau Lamothe Cissac Haut Medoc Cru Bourgeois
Chateau Lamothe Cissac Haut Medoc Cru Bourgeois, is a traditional style of Bordeaux that has elegance and savoury fruit in abundance.
Chateau Lamothe Cissac Haut Medoc Cru Bourgeois, shows off the charms of succulent, plummy, wild berry fruit and the classic cedar aromas of good barrel ageing – medium bodied with a long, complex finish.
In Roman times, the terroir around the estate was already famous for producing quality wines. Remnants of a villa Romana have been discovered close to the Château. http://domaines-fabre.fr/en
