Clos Troteligotte Cahors “K2” 2014


K-2 is named for one of the highest mountains on earth and is the top wine of the estate. Sourced from Emmanuel’s oldest, lowest yielding vines. This is Cahors at its highest purity.┬áProduced from organically grown grapes, this is the top of the Troteligotte range. It is made from 25-year-old vines, and aged in amphorae. That gives a wine that is rich with soft rounded tannins and juicy blackberry fruits. It has a dense texture from aging on the lees in the amphorae.

More Information

The ever-innovative Emmanuel (Manu) Rybinski is without question Cahors’ hottest young star. Overseeing 24 acres on the plateau of Villeseque, Emmanuel Rybinski tends to some of the best terroir in Cahors. Emmanuel’s 24 acre estate sits atop an iron rich plateau on the southern border of the appellation. The iron chunks scattered atop this vineyard are so pure you could sell them to a smelter.

The property is unusually high in elevation with allows Emmanuel to farm organically with ease (he is above the fog line and therefore has no issues with mildew).

Rows are ploughed by horse and spaced tightly. In 2005, the operation was classified under rational agriculture and in January 2014, Clos Troteligotte became certified organic.

The Rybinski family home is equally impressive – An off the grid Eco/DIY masterpiece Emmanuel created from a 17th century stone barn.
