A pure product from Cahors, made from Malbec supplemented with a few bunches of Merlot. Its sincere and hospitable character will tell you a lot about the appellation and its wines. An intense and fresh nose, with black currant, wild pepper and mint. It is a smooth and delicious wine that requires simple and honest food: some grilled vegetables, a creamy polenta with stewed meat or aged cheeses. It is a lively wine, full of energy, juicy and inviting. The ideal guest at the table!
The vines of Château du Cèdre are rooted in two different soils: The terroirs, composed of stony clay and limestone, yield pure wines with fine tannins, while more powerful and concentrated wines come from soils composed of clay, sand and rich in pebbles .
According to the brother of the winemaker Jean-Marc, it was "Un millésime comme on en rêve", a dream year. Something that has become rare in recent years. Spring started cool and wet and suddenly changed his mind just before the vines bloom, bringing in more sunshine and pleasant temperatures. These ideal weather conditions lasted until autumn, interrupted only by some beneficial rains in July and August, while the beautiful September brought the grapes to full maturity. A "stress-free" harvest started on Wednesday, October 5, 2016.
Aging: 80% of the wine is tank matured, 20% barrel aged (2 year old barrels) for 16 to 18 months.
