Soil: Alkaline sub-soil with some areas covered with a gravelly top-soil, others chalky clay, thus bestowing excellent balance.
Production: 180,000 bottles
The Wine: The wine is vinified traditionally but in a modern cellar. It is aged in oak casks (30% of new barrels every year) and bottled, always at the Chateau, after fining and light filtration. The highlt prestigious "Vieilles Vignes" cuvee which is also subject to very strict rules, is vinified at higher temperatures-controlled fermentation and is aged in new oak barrels, so as to obtain a highly rich concentration comparable to the crus classes of Pauillac.
Chatea Lamothe-Cissac: a wine that is extremely pleasant, rich, deep in colour, and features an elegant bouquet and a fine flavour that is full of charm and breeding. Enjoy it with all the richest meats, poultry and with all mild chheses.
