Chateau du Cedre, Le Cedre Cahors 2015
One of the two top wines from Chateau du Cedre, this selection is named after the cedar tree in the winerys courtyard. With its slender body and its seductive bouquet of spices, white chocolate and black, concentrated fruit, this pure Malbec exposes as a great seducer. But it's a true lady, elegant and refined, that we also consider as being the prima ballerina of the Chateau du Cedre, full of grace and sensuality.
Harvest is sorted in the vineyards and destemmed and crushed when arriving in the cellar. 40 days of maceration with daily punching down of the skin cap at the beginning of fermentation. Malolactic fermentation is done in oak barrels. Our wines are neither fined nor filtered before bottling. Barrel aged for 24 months
L�on Verhaeghe from Morsleede in Flanders, left his native country in the early 20th century to settle in south-western France. His son Charles together with his wife Marie-Th�r�se started a farm with mixed cultures in 1958 planting some vines on vineyard land devastated by the frosts in 1956. They have added one more hectare of vineyards in three different plots every year. The estate is now run by Charles� sons Pascal and JeanMarc who duly studied winemaking in Burgundy & California, and Bordeaux respectively.
