Pascal Verhaeghe of the UIVC with an overview of Cahors
This show was published 11 November 2016
Pascal Verhaeghe is the président of the UIVC (Union Interprofessionnelle des Vins de Cahors). With his brother Jean-Marc he owns Chateau du Cèdre, widely regarded as one of Cahors' leading estates.
We talk about the Cahors wine region, its history and wine. Pascal describes the three terraces and how winemakers produce different quality levels of wine on each, from Vin de Pays to IGP and AC Cahors. In his view, the style of Malbec has changed over recent years, from intense, over-extracted, highly tannic wines to a much more accommodating style.
The UK Wine Show is sponsored by ThirtyFifty. Our team of wine tasters are busy entertaining and educating UK consumers to help them get the most out of wine.
The music used for the UK Wine Show is Griffes de Jingle 1 by Marcel de la Jartèle and Silence by Etoile Noire.
