Le Cèdre Malbec Vintage 2011

Area of production : Vin de liqueur

Soil and climate : Soils of clay and limestone

Grape varieties : 100% Malbec

Climate conditions : Weather conditions in 2011 were varied, with a very hot and sunny Spring and quite a cool Summer, which fortunately slowed down the headstart the vines had taken on their growth.

Type of winemaking : The grapes for this cuvée are picked late. Neutral spirit is added before completion of the alcoholic fermentation. After pressing off the tank, the wine ages for a year in used 500 litre oak vats.

Tasting notes : A close cousin of Vintage Porto, it has less alcohol (16% vol) and residual sugar (100 gr per liter). It presents a very fruity and complex nose of blackberry, cassis and hints of violet, spices and cocoa. Smooth and velvety on the palate, with a long and fresh final.

Stored correctly(10/15°C and a hygrometry above 70%), this cuvée may be cellared for the next 10 years.

Food recommandation : This wine pairs perfectly with foie gras, blue cheeses and chocolate desserts, but also goes down a treat as an aperitif... « A real grape juice »
