100% Malbec coming from the limestone lateau and Mindel high terraces. Robin and Jules are Pascal Verhaeghes two sons and embody the future of Château du Cèdre. Having studied viticulture, Robin has been working in the vineyard with his uncle, Jean-Marc Verhaeghe for the last four years, where he's been "innoculated" with the culture of the estate and its close relationship with Mother Nature.

Jules, also a student of viticulture and business, gained his experience of winemaking over 4 different harvests in 4 different regions and is graudally taking over in the cellars. Both care deeply about their region, its terroir and the Malbec grape, are fervent environmentalists and aspire above all to continuing the family adventure!
'Juveniles' is their first wine : Malbec based, vinifed without sulphur so as not to mask its fruit and silky tannins. A straightforward, fresh and smooth wine!
Vinified without addition of sulphites. Concrete tanks, sorting of the harvest, destemming. Extraction by punching down the cap at the beginning of fermentation. Barrel fermentation for about 30 days at 25°C. Elevage without addition of sulphites in 57 HL casks. A fresh, fruity, straightforward wine. Smooth and aromatic on the palate, with notes of fresh fruit coulis and gentle tannins. In the right conditions (between 10 & 15°C and with a level of atmospheric humidity over 70%) Juveniles may be cellared for up to 10 years.
