Malbec du Clos 2012 - Clos Triguedina, Cahors

Out of stock

The opinion of the sommelier

When you think about Cahors, it’s not long before you think of Jean-Luc Baldès, one of the most talented winemakers of the appellation. I was not surprised to find in that wine delicious flavours of blackcurrant and of course a lot of tannins, as they are typical characteristics of malbec. However, I was more surprised to feel menthol aromas which were much more unexpected! 

 

Terroir

The terroir of Cahors is known for being very dry. It rains very little, which is a wonderful thing for the grapes that hence can perfectly mature. The Clos Triguedina covers around 65 hectares of mixed clay, silica and limestone. Just remember that this kind of ground ensures that the vine is subjected to enough water stress to make sure that the grapes will develop various aromas.

lecepageGrape variety

Nowadays, malbec is famous all around the world thanks to the wines from Argentina, where this variety is widely grown. Originally, malbec comes from the southwest of France, where it has been grown since the Middle Ages. France is still the second producer of malbec behind Argentina. This variety usually gives to the wines a deep colour with nice aromas of blackberries.

lemillesime Vintage

In Cahors, the 2012 vintage gave grapes of good quality, but the quantity was a lot lower than usual. Some estates even said that they suffered a decrease of 20%, which is a lot for this appellation not used to the curse of hail. The reason was a rainy spring that slowed down the flowering, which significantly decreased the yields. But don’t worry: that means that the remaining grapes got more concentrated during the summer, which is very good news for the quality of the wine! 

lerecoltant A winemaker, a family

Since 1830, the Baldès family has been developing the Clos Triguedina passing from father to son the passion of making good wine and of course the skills to achieve that. Nowadays, Jean-Luc Baldès is an iconic figure of the appellation. Talented and passionate, he is known in the area under the name “the master of malbec”.
