Clos Troteligotte Cahors KOR 2018

The Clos Troteligotte KOR Malbec is one of my personal favourites as it not only uses my initials but it's also a bloody great wine. This 100% Malbec is made organically and is soon to be designated as biodynamic. The flavours and textures are remarkable and this superb red wine is one I highly recommend.

The ever-innovative Emmanuel Rybinski is one of Cahors 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 de-budding 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. Micro-plots were then vinified separately. A cold pre-fermentation maceration took place prior to fermentation using indigenous yeasts. A manual "pigeage" or punching down of the cape extracted the colour and flavours, followed by a long maceration under controlled temperatures. The wine aged in unlined concrete vats on its fine lees for 18 months prior to bottling.

Tasting Note

The Clos Troteligotte K-Or Malbec is a smooth, but dense wine with powerful black plum and berry fruits that are tinged with a herbaceous 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.

Can you explain your shipping charges?

We charge the amount the courier charges us to deliver the wines. In the majority of cases this is £10.00 for a dozen wines. For local delivery we charge £5.00 as we can often do this ourselves, by local we mean Milton Keynes.

Couriers charge by weight and size and a case of wines is both heavy and bulky and so the costs are fairly high. The charges are the same if you are buying 1 bottle or 6 bottles but they change if you go over 6 bottles due the the excess weight and size. Couriers also charge a fee to cover fuel excess and this all goes towards the total cost not to mention the 20% VAT to be added to everything.

Currently if someone orders a dozen wines they are charged £10.00 but if they order 24 bottles the charge is the same!

If you wish to have your wines shipped to other countries the costs are extreemly high and often not worth paying for. The cost for example to ship to the USA for a dozen wines would be £100.00 for the shipping alone! Therefore we have taken the decision not to ship any wines outside of the UK.

 

What is your minimum order?

The minimum order is 1 bottle! I prefer it if people order more and you get better value with the delivery if you do this too!

 

What if I want to send wine as a gift?

No problem, we will send to your preferred address and even include a card free of charge!

We have two kinds of cards a blank one and a Thank you one. However if you want a Valentines one or a birthday card or anyother type of card please let us know. We will write your personal greeting and even include the soppy stuff. We don't charge for the cards as its our way of thanking you for choosing us to send a gift to your loved one. 

 

What about a discount?

I may be able to take a little off the price if you ask nicely and there is a large enough order. Please do not ask for a discount on any orders under 12 bottles.  Email me with your requirements and I will let you know if I can do anything. However the best way to get a discount is to sign up for the newsletter as there is often special offers given away to newsletter subscribers.
