Château du Cèdre is widely regarded as the leading estate in Cahors. Brothers Pascal and Jean-Marc Verhaeghe, both qualified oenologists, can trace its history back to their grandfather Léon who left his native Flanders to settle in south-west France in the early 1900s. In due course Léon’s son Charles and his wife Marie-Thérèse started a mixed farm in 1958 and began planting one hectare of vines in three different plots every year.
An open and opulent wine with a very mature nose and oxidative nuances. Ripe aromas of quince jelly, pear, apricot and honey bread but also sweet and spicy notes like saffron. Round and substantial on the palate with good acidity and a fresh herbal spiciness. A bit alcoholic at the end. This Viognier now has the optimum maturity for consumption.
