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.
Everyone's favourite grape variety, these days, seems to be Malbec. It's easy to see why, especially as the Argentinians have crafted a bright bold and flavoursome style out of the grape variety that Bordeaux forgot. In this case you will find a brace of very typical Mendoza Malbecs, including one from master wine maker Nicolas Catena with his slightly more subtle take on pure Malbec along with his stricter more serious Malbec Cabernet blend. Straddling the continents slightly, there's a bottle of the wonderful Malbec-based blend made at the Cuvelier (of Leoville Poyferre fame) family's Mendoza estate. And whilst Bordeaux may have (mostly) cast off Malbec, it still hangs on in the Cahors region of South West France from where we have included a trio of fine examples.
