Producer: Le Clos Troteligotte
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.
A smooth, but dense wine with powerful black plum and berry fruits which are underpinned by a mineral complexity. Concentrated and spicy, with great structure and a long, firm finish.
Food pairing: The perfect match for a seared steak, roasted venison, aubergine bakes and hard sharp cheeses
