Dense in colour, this young and textured Cahors shows
a salty character complemented by chewy blackberry
fruits and liquorice spice.
Producer Note
The ever-innovative Emmanuel Rybinski is one of Cahor's up and coming young stars.
The 14 hectare vineyard is located atop an iron-rich plateau on the southern border
of the Cahors appellation and produces predominantly Malbec with 10% of the vines
dedicated to Merlot. Since its inception in 1987, respect for the land has been a
priority for this family estate and they have passionately committed to sustainable
farming practices. In 2014, Clos Troteligotte was certified in Organic Agriculture and
2015 saw the beginnings of biodynamic viticulture. Passionate and dynamic, they
are producing outstanding, stylishly packaged Cahors wines from their unique terroir.
Pronounced with a French K "ka", their flagship wine K-Or is a play on words for
Cahors.
Vineyard
The vineyard is cultivated organically respecting the environment and enabling the
maximum expression of terroir. The 25 year old vines are trained according to the
simple Guyot method, with debudding and a green harvest taking place during the
course of the year to attain a yield of 50 hl/ha. The soil is calcareous-clay-siderolithic,
which is a red clay soil composed of limestone and rich in iron, a rarity in Cahors. This
unique terroir imparts minerality and complexity to these outstanding wines.
Winemaking
The fruit was selected from an individual plot. Micro plots were carefully selected and
vinified separately. A cold pre-fermentation maceration took place prior to
fermentation using indigenous yeasts. A manual "pigeage" or punching down of the
cap extracted the colour and flavours, followed by a long maceration under
controlled temperatures. The wine was aged in unlined concrete vats, on its fine lees
for 18 months prior to bottling.
Tasting Note
A modern styled Cahors with concentrated blackcurrant, menthol nuances and
intriguing undertones of crystallised pineapple. Supple with soft, fine tannins, the
aromas of fresh black fruits persist on the palate. Full bodied, but approachable with
a textured finish.
Serving Suggestion
Ideal with a seven-hour braised leg of lamb, a hearty beef stew or a pork and bean
cassoulet. Or try a cheeseboard, Cahors goes surprisingly well with mellow blue
cheeses like Barkham Blue or Stilton.
