INFO: 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.
Micro plots were carefully selected and vinified separately. A cold pre-fermentation maceration took place prior to fermentation using natural yeasts. A manual "pigeage" or punching down of the cap extracted the colour and flavours, followed by maceration under controlled temperatures. The wine was aged in unlined concrete vats, on its fine lees for 18 months. Vinified without the addition of sulphur and only a minimal amount was added at bottling.
A modern styled Cahors with intense blackcurrant, menthol nuances and wonderful mineral notes from the clay soil. Concentrated black fruits persist on the full bodied palate, with good balance through to a textured finish.
