CHÂTEAU DU CÈDRE

2009 Cahors Pascal Verhaeghe

What used to be called 'Prestige', this is the Chateau's own production. 90% Malbec and 10% Tannat aged in a combination of first, second and third year oak. Sensational wine this, full bodied, richly tannic, but in a very attractive and drinkable fashion, and immensely satisfying. Very real in every way.

Currently out of stock in our warehouse, but don't worry!

Made from the local côt, aka malbec, a grape variety successfully appropriated by the Argentinians, this is an attractively fleshy and fresh red now, but with a certain gutsy power that will repay a decade or so in the cool and dark.

Chateau du Cèdre, widely regarded as one of Cahors' leading estate, is the domaine of brothers Pascal and Jean-Marc Verhaeghe. Pascal, a mathematician at heart who came to winemaking later in life, is the driving force here. Although the son of a winemaker - his father founded the domaine in 1956 - he took little interest in the daily running of the vineyards and making wines until his experiences in Burgundy, making wines with Jean-Marie Guffens, swayed his opinion.
