It's producer's like Château du Cèdre that are really taking it up to the Argentineans and restoring France as the world's premium Malbec producer.
"This solid wine with its 90% Malbec is powerfully juicy and rich. The estate wine at Cèdre, it has considerable potential. A dense structure is balanced by spicy flavors and black fruits. Drink from 2026. Organic". ROGER VOSS. Wine Enthusiast.
This is a muscular wine, with luscious cassis, and indulgent dark chocolate dance harmoniously. The texture is delightfully chewy, complemented by excellent acidity that adds a refreshing touch and interest factor.
“The 24-ha estate of Pascal and Jean-Marie Verhaeghe has done as much as any to improve the recent quality of Cahors and provide the challenge it should be giving to the most profound Malbecs of Argentina - and some of the other great wines of France. Andrew Jefford, The New France.
