Cedric is born from a 30 hectare iconic estate, certified organic estate, nestled in the heart of the Lot Valley. The vines are located on the stony third terrace, imparting a light, more mineral driven style. Grapes are carefully selected and de-stemmed for primary fermentation and MLF in stainless steel. Extraction is gentle, with a short maceration and an overall light touch. Every decision is intended to preserve the freshness of fruit. Fined and filtered in accordance with bag-in-box requirements. The pedigree of this producer cannot be under-estimated. The driving philosophical force is balance: ecologically and in the wine. It is the perfect partner for our quest to package high quality, environmentally responsibly farmed wines in the package with the lowest carbon footprint.
This family estate is comprised of 27 hectares of organically farmed vineyards, of which 90% are planted with Malbec. The next generation of the family took over the estate in the 1990’s and banned the use of all herbicides and chemicals. Their driving quest is one of balance, ecological balance in the vineyards as well as balance in the wines they make. Pascal is a legend in the region. His attention to detail and depth of experience permit him to prevent wines with very minimal intervention that are clean and reflect their terroir transparently and accurately.
