Château du Cedre Cèdre Héritage Malbec 750ML
It is inky, spicy Cahors endowed with red and black fruits and smoked fig and liquorice flavours. A mixture of new and old oak, the top cuvees are made from low yields and the oldest vines on the estate. The grape variety here is Malbec (also known locally as Auxerrois), supplemented by smidgeons of Merlot and Tannat.
Crisp red, with good structure behind the dark plum and red berry flavors. Finishes with notes hot stone and brick. Drink now.
Score: 87. —Kim Marcus, 2009.
