Name: Cahors AOP
Cuvee: Le Cèdre
1x bottle 75cl
Production Area: AOP Cahors
Soil and climate: The vines of Château du Cèdre are rooted in two different types of soil: the terroirs, composed of stony clay-limestone, produce frank wines with fine tannins, while the more powerful and dense wines come from soils composed of clay, sand and rich in pebbles.
Grape varieties: 90% Malbec, 5% Merlot, 5% Tannat
Climatic conditions: The early budburst announced an early vintage last spring. The excellent climatic conditions were favourable to the flowering, suggesting a good harvest to come. The months of June and July were rainy, more because of the number of rainy days than the actual amount of rain. Summer finally started in the first days of August and lasted until the end of October, allowing for optimal ripening. After the tense and anxious days of early summer, the harvest proved to be of high quality and gave us back our smile! Our 2014 wines have great density, crisp freshness and wonderful finesse. A great vintage, for sure.
Vinification method: The harvest is sorted in the vineyard and de-stemmed on arrival at the winery. Maceration for 30 days with daily punching of the cap at the beginning of fermentation. The fermentation temperature does not exceed 28° C. Malolactic fermentation is carried out in oak barrels.
Type of ageing Between 20 and 22 months of maturation in new oak barrels as well as in old barrels used once or twice.
Tasting notes: This wine has sworn eternal fidelity and it sticks to it! Each year it is presented with a friendly handshake and a few attentive words.
