Organic – expression of terroirs – interesting microclimate
Château du Cèdre
A true expression of a quite wonderful terroir, the team at Château du Cèdre produces Malbec wines that are both fruity and possess the necessary composition to improve with age. Their 27 hectares of vineyards are influenced heavily by a bedrock of clay and limestone, as well as the wooded area which surrounds the estate, leaving wines with aromas of eucalyptus and juniper aromas.
Another key factor in the production process is the micro climate that the Domaine experiences, influenced by the prevailing wind from the Atlantic Ocean for eight months of the year, yet also affected by the warm weather from the Mediterranean Sea for the duration of the summer.
Their ‘Camille’ Malbec is packed with dark, rich flavours of plum and cassis compote. The intense juiciness is balanced with a subtle, herbal edge and a long, earthy finish.
