Cahors 'Extra Libre', Chateau du Cedre, 2021, Chateau du Cedre
Cahors in South-West France, just north of Toulouse, is the original home of Malbec. Of course, the Argentinians have rightly laid claim to it and produce great wines in Mendoza from this inky-purple grape, but it is in Cahors where the greatest expressions are found.
This wine is produced without any added materials such as sulphur or yeast to aid the winemaking process so we have a wine made entirely naturally just from pure fermented grapes. This results in an incredibly pure wine that is exceptionally expressive and seems to capture the essence of Malbec.
Chateau du Cedre have long pioneered organics in the region, and with this new cuvee, have taken the approach to another level, with impressive and consistent results.
Drink this with grilled meats or roast dinners.
Certified Organic wine.
Great service and excellent wines
Excellent service and excellent wines. I wanted a selection of six wines and asked Peckham Cellars to make the choice for me based on a price range. The wines were all superb and unique in that they were from small suppliers that I personally would have no knowledge of. If you want something different at your next dinner / party then I can't recommend these guys enough.
Super-speedy delivery! My wines arrived safe and sound in fully recyclable packaging. A real bonus. Website has such a great selection it was hard to choose.
I placed my order online from…Melbourne
I placed my order online from Melbourne Australia and the delivery of my birthday gift to a friend in London happened smoothly, quickly and well presented. Big thanks to the team at Peckham Cellars
Nice wine. Easy and efficient
Great for sending to friends as gifts/congratulations. You can include a message with the wine, so ideal really. Fun range of interesting wines.
