Chateau du Cedre

Chateau Du Cedre, Le Cedre 2012

The vineyards of Cahors in South West France have been there for twenty centuries. Cahors wines inherit their personality from their principal grape variety Auxerrois, more commonly known as Malbec, with a mixture of Tannat and Merlot.

Chateau du Cedre is widely regarded as one of the best estates in the region and is run by brothers Pascal and Jean-Marc Verhaeghe. The mantra here is quality – improving flavour and extract, pushing the boundaries of Cahors in order to match the Malbecs of the New World.

TASTING NOTES
With its thick cassis aromas and wild raspberry fruit this is a meal in itself and should be eaten with great reverence and a long spoon.

A wine to decant a couple of hours prior to drinking for maximum enjoyment.

REVIEWS & AWARDS
“Vibrant dense ruby with powerful, smoky vanilla-suffused nose of oak in a stylish modern vein, this shows sweetly concentrated pure black fruits character, with almost silky tannins in the context of Cahors Malbec, i.e. an inevitable chewy streak of tannin and fresh acidity, but the fruit is opulent enough with a nice bittersweet twist of astringency to carry it through.” – Anthony Rose
