Wine Notes: Cedric is born from a 30-hectare iconic, certified organic estate that is nestled in the heart of Lot Valley. The vines are located on the stony third terrace, imparting a light, more mineral-driven style. Grapes are carefully selected and destemmed for primary fermentation and malolactic 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. It was fined and filtered in accordance with bag-in-box requirements. The driving philosophical force is balance: ecologically and in the wine.

Tasting Notes: This is definitely French Cahors Malbec. It is elegant and savory with dark fruit notes.

Sustainability: The wine packaging format with the lowest level of carbon emissions is bag-in-box (BIB), or box wine. Glass bottle production is almost 10 times higher than BIB. Glass is also heavy to transport. Consisting of only cardboard and a bag, the BIB package is very lightweight, which enables considerable transport savings. The recycling process for BIB is also less energy intensive. Box wine is one of the most sustainable ways to buy and consume wine for early drinking.
