Lea & Sandeman reviewWhat 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. L&S

Sorry, not all bottle sizes of this product are in stock in our warehouse. However, we may have some bottles in one of our shops - why not give one of them a call?
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.
