Extra Libre 18 Mois has a fine perfume of cassis, blackberries and blueberries mixed with yellow peach and mango. A touch of iris and daffodil flowers gives the wine an elegant, floral character. On the palate it is a real delicacy: fresh fruit juice from the nose-scented fruit, enriched with lemon zest and white pepper and playful, crispy tannins. This wine goes well with everything grilled, fish, meat and vegetables. Chilled in the summer with a salad with steak tips, steak tartare, or carpaccio.
The vines of Château du Cèdre are rooted in two different soils: The terroirs, composed of stony clay and limestone, yield pure wines with fine tannins, while more powerful and concentrated wines come from soils composed of clay, sand and rich in pebbles .
According to the brother of the winemaker Jean-Marc, it was "Un millésime comme on en rêve", a dream year. Something that has become rare in recent years. Spring started cool and wet and suddenly changed his mind just before the vines bloom, bringing in more sunshine and pleasant temperatures. These ideal weather conditions lasted until autumn, interrupted only by some beneficial rains in July and August, while the beautiful September brought the grapes to full maturity. A "stress-free" harvest started on Wednesday, October 5, 2016.
Winemaking without added sulphites: the harvest is sorted in the vineyards and destemmed and pressed upon arrival in the cellar. 30 days of maceration with daily cap dipping (peeling). Malolactic fermentation is carried out in concrete tanks. Aged for 18 months in 2 year old oak barrels.
