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-Libre from 100% Chenin blanc is grown on white clay-limestone marl. Harvested by hand, it was fermented spontaneously and aged in amphorae for six months before being bottled without added sulphur.

Color

Straw yellow with light onion reflections.

Nose

The nose of Clos Troteligotte's 2019 K-Libre oscillates between crisp fruit and striking spice. Green and red sliced apples with a light brown cut and abundant grapefruit fill its fruit basket. White pepper and light tobacco add spicy accents and are joined by ground oyster shells and a fresh, salty sea breeze. 

Mouth

Gripping and straightforward on the nose, it flows over the tippler's palate at an elevated pace and mirrors the aromas of the nose on the palate as well. The acidity pulsates like a good bass line, the fruit acts as the hookline of this primarily structural experience. Juicy with good grip and multi-faceted aromatics, the glass fills up as if by magic one after the other - press repeat!
