The Verhaeghe family have been making wine in the Languedoc since the 1950s and are one of its leading estates, now certified both organic and biodynamic. Drawing on his winemaking experience from California to Burgundy, Pascal delicately creates wines of great elegance and roundness. The Heritage 2015 is made up of 95% Malbec and 5% Merlot and displays cassis, violets and spice aromas and is mellow and seamless on the palate.
Château du Cèdre, run by brothers Pascal and Jean-Marc Verhaeghe, is worth seeking out. At their best, these wines from Cahors are ideal pairings with meaty game birds and I have a soft spot for them.
