You should forget the out-dated image of furry Cahors wines scratching the palate ... Modern Cahors is a true charmer. Malbec gives us wonderful wines on this complex terroir. In good hands it makes full and harmonious, but above all tasty wines!
Château du Cèdre 2011
Beautiful fragrance of red and black fruits, as well as spicy notes. Well-integrated tannins and completely controlled power. Velvety texture, harmonious.
Battle Château Pineraie vs. Château du Cèdre
Two wines from Cahors ready to be tasted, but who can easily mature for another 10 years. Château Pineraie is an ancient winery that shows all its skills in this top cuvée presented here. Seductive and very complete. The Château du Cèdre 2011, with its soft texture and harmony, nevertheless seems to be superior. And this is just the basic wine of the winery! Both wines can easily compete with their (almost) neighbours from Saint-Émilion.
