Clos Triguedina

Jean-Luc Baldes’ family have been growing grapes in Cahors since 1830 so their knowledge of the how best to exploit Malbec in this South-Western corner of France is second to none. Aiming for an altogether more elegant and refined expression than perhaps the region is known for, Jean-Luc farms 70 hectares of vineyards on three distinct soil types. Chappelle du Clos comes from the red-clay dominated soils at the valley floor, giving a wine of ample fruit and velvet texture, a touch of merlot enhancing this effect. The grand vin Clos Triguedina is a blend of limestone, gravel and red-clay, Malbec dominated with merlot and tannat, the aim being a faithful representation of great Cahors terroir, without any rustic, hard edges. Furthermore, the domaine like to keep their wines in bottle until ready to drink, so the current release is generally 5 or so years old, making them irresistible on release. Suave, balanced and full of character, these are the perfect things to pair with the region’s standout dishes such as duck confit, cassoulet and Toulouse sausage as well as truffled dishes and robust charcuterie.
