Clos Troteligotte K-nom Cahors 2019

Dense in colour, this inky and textured Cahors shows a
graphite character complemented by chewy black
plum fruits and a hint of fennel.


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.
