Without added sulphites
Area of production: AOP Cahors
Grape varieties: 95 % Malbec – 5 % de Merlot
Soil type: The vines of Château du Cèdre root in two different types of soil: the first terroir, composed of stony clay and limestone, produces straightforward wines with fine tannins, whereas more powerful and dense wines derive from soils composed of clay, sand and rich in pebbles
Wine making without added sulphites: Harvest is sorted in the vineyards and destemmed and crushed upon arrival in the cellar. 30 days maceration with daily punching down of the skin cap. Malolactic fermentation is carried out in concrete tanks.
Type of ageing: Barrel aged for 12 months (barrels used twice).
Tasting note: A fine perfume of cassis, blackberries and blueberries mixed with yellow peach and mango. A touch of iris and daffodil flowers gives the wine an elegant, floral character. On the palate, it is a true delicacy: fresh fruit juice from the nose-scented fruits, enriched with lemon peel and white pepper and playful, crisp tannins.
Stored correctly (at 10/15°C and a with an air moisture level of at least 70%), we guarantee the quality of this cuvée for the next 2 years.
Food pairing: A wine for everyone and every table, at any season.
