Chateau du Cedre Cahors 2016 (1x75cl)

Whether they are of traditional style or more modern and to be enjoyed in their youth, at Château du Cèdre they always produce terroir wines. This may seem contradictory, but it’s possible, thanks to the cooperation of the wine grower, who brings the grapes to perfect ripeness, and the wine maker who fully controls ageing and blending. As a result of ongoing observation and reflection, they combine Burgundy’s way of highlighting origin and terroir to vinification techniques from Bordeaux.

The vines of Château du Cèdre root in two different types of soil: The first terroir, composed of stony clay and limestone, give straight wines with fine tannins, while more powerful and dense wines come from soils composed of clay, sand and a large quantity of pebbles.

See blue link below for the excellent and informative fiche technique/technical note from the winemakers at Château du Cèdre.

Château du Cèdre Cahors 2016 - fiche technique

90% Malbec, 5% Merlot, 5% Tannat.

As the Château say(s): It is a straight wine, straight but alluring at the same time. It expresses the richness and depth of Malbec from Cahors with joy and enthusiasm through a medium-bodied and expressive palate, with crisp tannins, vibrant freshness and appealing roundness. Its bouquet, marked by black fruits, spices, mint and some fresh peppers, evolves and grows gradually, giving length and finesse to the wine. This wine has great aromatic strength and perfectly pairs with local dishes: duck breast, confit, cassoulet, lamb, grilled meat, new cuisine, cheese.

ABV = 13.5%.
