Clos Troteligotte K-nom Cahors 2021

Dense in colour, this modern style Cahors shows a
graphite character complemented by juicy blackerry fruit
and a hint of fennel and herbs.
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 and biodynamically; part of the vineyard is
already certified and the younger parcels are in conversion. 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 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 this outstanding wine.
Winemaking
Micro plots were carefully selected and vinified separately. A cold pre-fermentation
maceration took place prior to fermentation using natural yeasts. A manual "pigeage"
or punching down of the cap extracted the colour and flavours, followed by
maceration under controlled temperatures. The wine was aged in unlined concrete
vats, on its fine lees for 18 months. Vinified without the addition of sulphur and only a
minimal amount was added at bottling.
Tasting Note
A modern styled Cahors with intense blackcurrant, menthol nuances and wonderful
mineral notes from the clay soil. Concentrated black fruits persist on the full bodied
palate, with good balance through to a textured finish.
