Made without added sulphur, Cahors Extra Libre became possible only after years of preparation in the vineyards. Black in colour. Wild berries, spices and a hint of violets - despite the dark expression it is lifted and bright, finishing on cedary notes - very much Cahors in profile. L&S (Sep 2020)

Dark purplish crimson. Heady bramble fruit on the nose. Quite luscious with a spearmint top note – much softer than many traditional Cahors. It's not at all like any Argentine Malbec either. Sui generis and quite approachable with chalky tannins on the finish. Drinking range: 2022 - 2027 Rating: 16/20 Jancis Robinson OBE MW - (Mar 2021)

Pascal Verhaeghe

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.
