Discover the wines of Clos Troteligotte, produced organically and biodynamically on an exceptional terroir of the Causse in the Cahors appellation. The estate comprises 19 hectares of vines, perched at an altitude of 350 metres and nestled in a wooded setting. The first vines were planted in 1987. Emmanuel took over from his father in 2004, and continues to work with the emblematic grape variety of the appellation, malbec, but also merlot, tannat, and several other varieties such as chenin and jurançon noir, historical grape varieties of the Quercy. A micro-parcel selection was carried out within the Clos, with the identification of two major types of clay-limestone terroirs: one kimmeridgian, the other siderolite (very rich in iron). In the cellar, the wine-making process is natural and sulfite-free. In the vineyard, biodiversity is preserved thanks to beehives, agroforestry and eco-pasturing.

Our story

It is a Clos of 19 ha perched on the high soils of the Cahors appellation, and managed in organic and biodynamic agriculture. The vines are nestled in the heart of a wooded setting, a point of harmony between the Lot valley and the Causses du Quercy. The first vines of the estate were planted in 1987. Emmanuel took over from his father in 2004, and continues to work with the emblematic grape variety of the appellation, malbec, but also merlot, tannat, and several other varieties such as chenin and jurançon noir, historical grape varieties of Quercy. A micro-parcel selection was carried out within the Clos, with the identification of two major types of clay-limestone terroirs: one kimmeridgian, the other siderolite (very rich in iron). In the cellar, the wine-making process is natural and sulfite-free. In the vineyard, biodiversity is preserved thanks to beehives, agroforestry, eco-pasture, and the cultivation of plants necessary for biodynamic practices.

Other little stories

I became a winemaker to continue the work begun by my father in 1987 on the Clos Troteligotte. The profession became obvious to me insofar as it calls for creativity, human contact and encounters. It allows me to have a certain relationship with nature and with people. I like all this at the same time. The vine and wine allow me to understand the world around me. We started organic farming in 2010. Biodynamics is its logical continuation. It is the best tool to improve biodiversity and preserve nature, soils and life in general. Our goal is to reveal our terroir, and to achieve balance and depth in the wines. I have tasted many biodynamic wines. The energy and vitality they gave off was obvious. That's what I'm looking for in my work, in all its aspects. At the end of the day, it's a question of coherence, respect for my environment, respect for myself and my convictions. At all levels, I wish to progress towards more emotion and sensation. We have been practicing biodynamics for five years now. This year we are taking a new step towards more autonomy and diversity in the vineyard. We are committed to agroforestry, eco-pasturing with sheep in our plots, and growing our own plants for biodynamic practices.
