GC, the king of Château du Cèdre, asks, as always, for patience.At first he is silent, only a few dark aromas escape from the glass.Then black currants, cherries, cocoa and violet rise from the wine and mingle with a feeling of freshness.The sudden intensity and richness of the bouquet let us know that we can expect more.Be patient and prepared, as time will open this bouquet with certainty.The taste is powerful and rich, supported by freshness and a real tannic structure.Present, compact and young, it already carries the promise of longevity and satisfaction, while spices, green pepper and a lemon zest accompany the long finish.A great wine, wise and complete, that will be at your disposal for years to come.Enjoy this great wine with grilled beef, for example an entrecote, venison stew, fried foie gras and wild duck breast.
An excellent vintage. Spring started with nice higher than average temperatures and rather dry conditions. June was exceptionally sunny and allowed a perfect flowering, while July and August were full of sunshine and some rainfalls at the right moment. Weather conditions in September allowed a close to perfect maturation of the grapes.
Grapes are hand picked and sorted. Harvest is fully destemmed. 40 days of fermentation and maceration in 500-litre oak vats, with regular punching down of the skin cap at the beginning of fermentation for extraction of colour and tannins.
Type of ageing: Malolactic fermentation is followed by 24 months of ripening in the same oak vats. Bottled without filtering.
