Chateau du Cedre is a producer in the Cahors region of France. The winery was founded in 1956 by Charles Verhaeghe and continues under the direction of his sons Jean-Marc and Pascal. The winery specializes in the regional star grape Malbec (Cot) which is sometimes blended with small percentages of Merlot and Tannat. They practice certified organic farming and production methods.
In need of a decanter or simply a few hours with the cork popped, this wine gets better with every sip. Dark, lush colors lead to big bold fruit and tannins that overwhelm at first, but are necessary in the further development of the wine once it's open. Will compete with any of your finest 30-40 California "big boy" cabs.
I LOVED this wine. Big bodied, spicy, supple tannins, concentrated, long finish.
