Cahors Chateau de Cedre, full bodied, ripe, subtle oak, southern French Malbec. Cahors Chateau du Cèdre has a lovely sweet and ripe fruit concentration with a lick of chocolate and espresso and hint of violets. Smooth and deep on the palate, it has real freshness and a hint of mineral saltiness, though that smoothing weight of ripe fruit and supporting oak is nicely set against ripe tannins. Get yourself some steak for this on a Friday night!

The estate was originally created by Charles Verhaeghe on vineyard land devastated by the frosts in 1956 in Viré-Sur-Lot. His sons Pascal and Jean-Marc duly studied winemaking, the former in Burgundy and California, the latter in Bordeaux. Ecological viticultural methods eschewing weedkillers and chemical fertilizers, yield reduction by serious pruning, leaf stripping for greater sun exposure and air circulation, harvesting the grapes on the verge of overripeness yield the superb raw material essential to create fabulous wines. In the cellars the Verhaeghes aim for softness, richness and harmony through gentle extraction by long vattings and limited pigeage, malolactic fermentation and sensible use of oak.

  1. How good is this wine?

    Charles Whitehead02/12/2019

    This is a classic Cahors wine. I love wine from the Cahors region because it is real wine. Deep in colour, smooth but with a gentle bite, earthy and very drinkable. Sorry but I don't do "petrol" or "with mint chocolate overtones", but this is a wine made for steaks, venison casseroles and pies and all sorts of beef. Just buy some and enjoy. Well done Buonvino for finding it.

    Tried this wine on a couple of occasions, it is a nice easy drinker. Not an out and out winner but as expected for the price. Would buy again.
