Behind its dark, ruby colour and violet hints, the Héritage hides intense smells of cassis, violet and spices. Straightforward on the palate, with pure and clear acidity, wrapped in mellowness. Altogether, this gives a good length to the wine. 


This wine pairs perfectly with beef, duck breast, confit, cold cuts, cheese...

Description

The 2014 vintage was very contrasted, with a very sunny Spring, almost blistering, and a cool Summer, which slowed down the impressive headstart in the vine's ripeness.

Soil and climate : The vines of Château du Cèdre root in two different types of soil: The terroirs, composed of stony clay and limestone, give straight wines with fine tannins, whereas more powerful and dense wines derive from soils composed of clay, sand and rich in pebbles.

Grape varieties : 95% Malbec, 5% Merlot

Type of winemaking : Three weeks of skin maceration, with punching down of the cap at the beginning of fermentation. Malolactic fermentation in tanks.

Type of ageing : 80% of the wine is tank aged, 20% barrel aged (2 year old barrels) for 16 to 18 months.

Tasting notes : Behind its dark, ruby colour and violet hints, the Héritage hides intense smells of cassis, violet and spices. Straightforward on the palate, with pure and clear acidity, wrapped in mellowness. Altogether, this gives a good length to the wine. You will appreciate its flavours during all seasons, together with some nice bistro-cuisine or grilled meat.

Stored correctly we guarantee the quality of this cuvée for the next 5 years.

Food recommandation : This wine pairs perfectly with beef, duck breast, confit, cold cuts, cheese...
