A smooth, but dense wine with powerful black plum and
berry fruits which are tinged with dry notes of fresh
minerality.
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 40hl/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. The micro-plots were vinified separately,
without the addition of sulphur. 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. The wine
aged in unlined concrete vats on its fine lees for 18 months prior to bottling.
Tasting Note
A smooth, but dense wine with powerful black plum and berry fruits which are tinged
with a herbacous complexity. Concentrated and spicy, with great structure and a
long, firm finish.
Serving Suggestion
The perfect match for a seared steak, roasted venison, aubergine bakes and hard
sharp cheeses.
