Chateau du Cedre

Chateau du Cédre is widely regarded as one of Cahors' leading estates, founded in 1956 by Charles Verhaeghe. Today it is run by his two sons, Pascal and Jean-Marc, who have a passion for the Cot (Malbec) grape, and make some of the best wines in the region. Pascal, a mathematician at heart who came to winemaking later in life, is the driving force here. Jean- Marc, Pascal’s brother, also works at the estate and oversees the vineyards/management for their estate bottled wines (Cahors Le Prestige, Cahors Le Cedre, Cahors GC).

The vineyards of the Château du Cèdre lie on the Bru hillsides situated on the commune of Vire-sur-Lot. The estate spreads over 25 hectares (61.75 acres) of vineyard land (23 ha of red, 2 ha of white). The area’s traditional varieties are cultivated on the finest wine-growing soils of Cahors. Half is on a terroir locally named "Le Tran,” a deep clay-limestone soil full of stones. The vines' roots can make their way deep between these stones, which play also a role in the hydric and thermic regulation. The other terroir (thus the second half of the estate) is mainly composed of pebbles mixed with reddish iron-bearing sands on top, and mixed with clay and flint in the sub-soil.
