Château Lamothe Cissac, 2018, Cru Bourgeois Haut Medoc (12x75cl)
Geographically, this property is remarkably close to Château Mouton Rothschild but fortunately, being just the wrong side of the fence in Haut Medoc rather than Pauillac, it comes at a very affordable price!
Its proximity to Pauillac is pleasingly obvious on the palate and for me, is a major part of its charm. We have regularly imported this wine since the 2005 harvest and have been amazed by the wine making skills in creating balanced wines in pretty much any vintage. This wine from the reputable 2018 vintage is emerging from its youthful shell as a delicious, rounded Claret, which will remain firmly on my list for the next few years.
The publication called 'The Wine Enthusiast' recently scored this 2018, 91/100!
