Chateau du Cedre, in the heart of the Cahors appellation, must be regarded as the region's leading light; the refined Malbec grape reaches new heights here. Deep, dark and elegant, Pascal and Jean-Marc Verhaeghe’s wines reveal the superb terroir of their estate.
The vineyard is essentially organic without having the Ecocert stamp on the label. Since 1988, they practice environmental friendly viticulture: no herbicides are used, there is no spraying against rot and only organic compost is used. A small amount of Tannat and Merlot (5% each) is used in the regular cuvee (formally called "Prestige") but the flagship wine of Chateau du Cedre is 100% Malbec.
