Tasting of the 2008 vintage Château du Cèdre #Cahors

28 April 2011, by Sebastian Nickel

Chateau du Cedre 2008Bottled in autumn 2010 after some 22 months of ageing in oak barrels, this blend of Malbec and some 10% of Merlot and Tannat shows up with a dark but sparkling, violet colour in the glass.

The spicy nose gradually opens with a smell of ripe and juicy cherries and hints of smoke and tar. A smooth attack and a dense but fluid palate with tight tannins.

The long final solidly stands on an almost perfect balance between structure and freshness, surrounded by fresh fruits, cinnamon and cloves.
