Clos Troteligotte Knom Cahors Malbec 2018

Cahors is often thought of as the birthplace of Malbec and Clos Troteligotte want to make Malbec that have a true sense of place. The Knom Malbec is one of their finest examples. Clos Troteligotte Knom Malbec adds a touch of Merlot to the blend to soften the intense hit that the Malbec grape gives.

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 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 50 hl/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 carefully selected and vinified separately. A cold pre-fermentation maceration took place prior to fermentation using indigenous yeasts. A manual "pigeage" or punching down of the cap extracted the colour and flavours, followed by a long maceration under controlled temperatures. The wine was aged in unlined concrete vats, on its fine lees for 18 months prior to bottling.

Tasting Note

A modern styled Cahors Malbec with concentrated blackcurrant, menthol nuances and intriguing undertones of crystallised pineapple. Supple with soft, fine tannins, the aromas of fresh black fruits persist on the palate. Full bodied, but approachable with a textured finish.

Serving Suggestion

Ideal with a seven-hour braised leg of lamb, a hearty beef stew or a pork and bean cassoulet. Or try a cheese board, Cahors goes surprisingly well with mellow blue cheeses like Barkham Blue or Stilton.

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.
