Château du Cèdre 2015 AOC Cahors


Cahors is one of the most emblematic appellations in the South West of France and it’s the obvious choice to discover this amazing region. Sometimes called the “Black Wine” given its dark colour, Cahors wines are mainly made of the Malbec grape, which may be blended with other grapes like Merlot or Tannat. Château du Cèdre is one of the most famous wines of Cahors - if not the most. The winemakers gained their reputation trying different experiments on the vines and using old-style machines in the vineyard to keep the tradition going. This wine boasts superb aromas of ripe black fruit with sweet spices, fine tannins and a wooden finish. A superb expression of the Cahors appellation!

Wine-Spectator.jpg

91/100 "Dominated by 90% Malbec, this is the main estate wine of this producer. Its tannins are there, although they are relatively smooth and certainly balanced by the great black fruits. The wine is still young."

Decanter World Wine Awards

Commended at Decanter World Wine Awards "Powerful graphite and black fruit nose. Fresh and warm, if a rather vague, palate."
