Château du Cèdre is widely regarded as the leading estate in Cahors, tracing its roots back to Pascal and Jean-Marc’s grandfather, Léon who left his native Flanders to settle in south-west France in the early 1900s.
Château du Cèdre ‘Le Cèdre Malbec Vintage'
A close cousin of Port, it has less alcohol and residual sugar. Stunning 100% Malbec made from late harvest grapes and neutral spirit added to stop fermentation, foot-trodden in the Portuguese manner, the result is a rich, lightly nutty with blackberry, blackcurrant and hints of violet, spices and cocoa.
