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
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 35 hectolitres per hectare. 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.
The fruit was selected from an individual plot. Micro-plots were 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 oak foudres on its fine lees for 24 months prior to bottling.
Traditionally styled with intense dark fruits, plums and blackberries with nuances of
leather follow through to a richly textured palate. Complex and structured,
elderberry and blackberry are enveloped by hints of vanilla and focussed mineral
notes. Beautifully balanced with a long persistent finish.
Delicious with richly sauced meat dishes, venison, gamey pheasant or duck.
