Le Cèdre 2014

Reference: cedrecd
Producteur: Le Cèdre (Château)


red wine - 75cl bottle - AOC Cahors

Soil and climate : The vines of Château du Cèdre root in two different types of soil: The terroirs, composed of stony clay and limestone, give straight wines with fine tannins, while more powerful and dense wines come from soils composed of clay, sand and a large quantity of pebbles.

Grape varieties : 100% Malbec

Climate conditions : The 2011 vintage was very contrasted, with a very sunny Spring, almost blistering, and a rainy Summer, which slowed down the impressive headstart in the vine's ripeness.

Type of winemaking : Harvest is sorted in the vineyards and destemmed and crushed when arriving in the cellar. 40 days of maceration with daily punching down of the skin cap at the beginning of fermentation. Malolactic fermentation is done in oak barrels. 
Our wines are neither fined nor filtered before bottling.

Type of ageing Barrel aged for 24 months (80% new oak, 20% old barrels used once). 

Tasting notes : Fine nose deep colour, lovely freshness and purity of mulberryish aromas, delicious mulberry and cherry fruit vinosity on the palate, showing richness an concentration, subtle oak and firm spine of acidity bringing a real verve and freshness to the wine which is supple textured and finishes with a refreshing, mineral twist. Lovely overall balance of fruit, structure and minerality (Comment by Anthony Rose).
Residual sugars ≤ 2g/l

Under appropriate conditions of use and storage (10/15°C and a hygrometry above 70%), we guarantee the quality of this cuvée for the next 15 years.

Food recommandation : This wine will accompany very well duck stew, grilled beef, venison stew, rabbit with plum sauce, a cassoulet, foie gras, goat's cheese...
