Chateau Cissac 2012, Haut Medoc

In 1895, Jacques Mondon, a lawyer in Pauillac, acquired several vineyards in the parish of Cissac-Medoc. He combined these different vineyards under the name of Chateau Cissac. In 1940 Louis Vialard inherited the property from his grandparents Mondon and he set about the task of restoring the vineyards and the outbuildings as well as the family home. The château is of a particular architectural style, "Chartreuse" of the 18th century and is probably on the site of a Roman Villa.
