Château du Cèdre Cahors 2015 - fiche technique
The vines of Château du Cèdre are planted in two different types of soil: stony clay and limestone, producing straightforward wines with fine tannins, whereas the more powerful and dense wines come from soils composed of clay, sand and rich in pebbles. This wine is 90% Malbec, 5% Merlot, 5% Tannat
This was the first vintage of Chateau du Cedre Cahors to be certified as organic. A great amount of work was done in the vineyards during the end of August and the beginning of September which then allowed them to harvest healthy and juicy grapes. The grapes are sorted in the vineyards and destemmed upon arrival in the cellar. This is followed by 30 days of maceration with daily punching down of the skin cap at the beginning of fermentation. The wine spends between 20 and 22 months of ripening in new oak as well as in old barrels used once or twice.
This is an honest and sincere wine which is fresh and enlivening, tender and generous. A well-stocked fruit basket with plums, cherries and blackberries, enriched by fresh lemon zest and spices, supported by tangy minerality. An inviting wine to accompany an excellent dinner!
