Clos Troteligotte of Emmanuel Rybinski is a 19 hectare enclosed domain located on the high terroirs of the Cahors appellation. The estate's own vineyards are located in the middle of a forest between the Lot Valley and the Causses, the limestone plateau of Quercy Blanc. Rybinski firmly believes that the quality of the wines is directly rooted in the work done in the vineyards as well as in the quality of the soils. In order to promote the greatest possible balance between vines and soils, Rybinski farms his vineyards according to the principles of biodynamics.

Since 1987, Clos Troteligotte has been practicing a rural agriculture that considers viticulture as part of a healthy circular economy. The experience and observations of the natural interplay of vines, terroir and climate resulted in organic certification in 2014 and biodynamic certification according to Demeter guidelines in 2017. The reds are on the ferruginous clay-limestone terroir of the Cahors plateau, while the whites are grown outside the Clos on external 12 hectares on the Quercy blanc limestone terroirs. The wines of the domaine are marketed under the AOC Cahors as well as Vin de France.

The K-barré from 100% Malbec is grown on white clay-limestone-marl soils. Harvested by hand, it was fermented spontaneously and, after a short maceration period, matured for ten months in used barrels before being bottled as Vin de France without added sulphur.

Color

Bright cherry red, luminous and clear.

Nose

The bright cherry nose of the vintage-less K-barré from 100% Malbec from Emmanuel Rybinski's Clos Troteligotte is congenially counteracted by notes of fresh sage and laurel. Fruit and herbal spice in fine interplay are underpinned by subtle mineral notes reminiscent of wet table chalk.

Mouth

On the palate, the K-barré functions more as a strong rosé than as a light red, since thanks to the short maceration time, it has few tannins that would distinguish it as such. Instead, it shines with cherry-clear fruit and fine-grained tannins that are more reminiscent of the tart astringency of fresh garden herbs than of tannins. Light-hearted with full fruit ahead, the goblet fills up time and again for Mediterranean-inspired spring cuisine.
