Winemaker Notes

Behind its dark, ruby color and violet hints, the Heritage hides intense smells of cassis, violet and spices. Straightforward on the palate, with pure and clear acidity, wrapped in mellowness. Altogether, this gives a good length to the wine.

You will appreciate its flavors during all seasons, together with some nice bistro-cuisine or grilled meat. This wine pairs perfectly with beef, duck breast, confit, cold cuts, cheese.

Blend: 95% Malbec, 5% Merlot

Critical Acclaim

WE 90
Wine Enthusiast
This is a big-hearted, ripe wine from the Verhaeghe family, one of the top producers in Cahors. It is packed with black fruits and firm tannins. They promise richness to come with structure, wood aging flavors and density. It's a wine that is just starting out, still boasting its youthful fruit. Give it until 2020 before drinking.

Chateau du Cedre, France
Chateau du Cedre  Winery Image
Chateau du Cedre 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 Chateau du Cedre 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.

Within the Southwest of France, this is the one region outside of Argentina that is today almost exclusively dependent on Malbec. Locally the variety is called Cot, and makes a dense, earthy and black fruit dominant red wine. Both the Atlantic Ocean and Mediterranean both have a strong influence on the climate of this region.

Celebrated for its bold flavors and supple texture, Malbec has enjoyed runaway success in Argentina since the late 20th century. The grape originated in Bordeaux, France, where it historically contributed color and tannin to blends. A French agronomist, who saw great potential for the variety in Mendoza’s hot, high-altitude landscape, brought Malbec to Argentina in 1868. Somm Secret—If you’re trying to please a crowd, Malbec is generally a safe bet with its combination of dense fruit and soft tannins.
