Clos Troteligotte K-lys Cahors 2016

A powerful Cahors, layered and complex with an intense
and mouthfilling character of lavender 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.
Vintage
2016 was a vintage which resulted in mature fruit which showed excellent
characteristics. The yield was lower than previous years, resulting in concentrated fruit.
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 35 hectolitres per hectare. The soil is calcareousclay-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 individual plots and each of the micro-plots was 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 a long maceration under controlled temperatures. Vinified
without the addition of sulphur; and only minimal sulphur was added at bottling. The
wine was aged in oak foudres on its fine lees for 24 months.
Tasting Note
A powerful Cahors showing intense dark fruits, plums and blackberries layered with
nuances of leather, which 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.
