K-Lys Clos Troteligotte Malbec 2013

Clos Troteligotte K Lys Malbec is an organic Malbec made by Emmanuel Rybinski in the Cahors region of France. This organic Malbec is made with true passion and the drive to attain the ultimate expression of this wonderful grape. The vines are 25 years old and grown on red clay soils which impart amazing complexity and minerality to the wine. The wine is aged in oak barrels for 24 months on it's fine lees which adds superb depths of flavour to the superb minerality of the wine.

This is one of our new additions to the list and we think all the wines made by Emmanuel are superb. This is a complex and structured wine with oodles of blackberry and elderberry flavours which are complemented by hints of vanilla, leather and intense mineral notes. Superb with all forms of game meat and a delight to drink on it's own if you like full bodied Malbec's.

This wine is on special offer for World Malbec Day on April 17th 2016. If you buy 11 bottles you will get the 12th bottle free of charge until Friday 6th of May 2016

Producer note

Emmanuel Rybinski is one of Cahors rising young wine makers. His 14 acre vineyard is certfied as organic and is soon to be declared biodynamic. It is located on a iron rich plateau on the southern borders of the Cahors region of France. The majority of the vineyard is planted with Malbec but there is also 10% Merlot grown here. The respect for the land is apparant and the vineyard practised sustainable farming in all regards.

Viticulture

The vineyard is cultivated organically respecting the environment and enabling the maximum expression of terroir. The 25 year old vines are trained accoring to the Guyot method, with debudding and a green harvest taking place during the course of the year to attain a yield of only 35hl/ha. The soil is calcareous-clay-siderolthic 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.

Vinification

The fruit was selected from an individual plot and then micro plots were vinified seperately. A cold pre fermentation maceration took place prior to fermentation using indigenous yeasts. Manual pigeage extracted the colour and flavours and this was followed by a long maceration under controlled temperatures. The wine was then aged in oak barrels for 24 months on it's fine lees prior to bottling.

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.
