|Availability:||In stock (46)|
Area of production : AOC Cahors
Soil and climate : The vines of Château du Cèdre root in two different types of soil: The terroirs, composed of stony clay and limestone, give straight wines with fine tannins, whereas more powerful and dense wines derive from soils composed of clay, sand and rich in pebbles.
Grape varieties : 95% Malbec, 5% Merlot
Type of winemaking: Three weeks of skin maceration, with punching down of the cap at the beginning of fermentation. Malolactic fermentation in tanks.
Type of ageing: 80% of the wine is tank aged, 20% barrel aged (2 year old barrels) for 16 to 18 months.
Tasting notes : A pure product of Cahors, made of Malbec complemented by some bunches of Merlot. Its upright and welcoming character will tell you a lot about the appellation and its wines. An intense and fresh nose, with blackcurrant, wild pepper and mint.
Food recommandation : A smooth and delicious wine that requires simple and honest food: some grilled vegetables, a creamy polenta with simmered meat, matured cheese ... An enthusiastic wine, full of energy, succulent and welcoming. The ideal guest at your table.
