In 1830, Etienne Baldes planted his first plots of Cahors vineyards at the Clos Triguedina, having spotted the best terraces of the Lot valley. The vineyard, partially destroyed by phylloxera in 1877, was replanted subsequently. Protected by its microclimate, it was only partially affected by the severe frosts of 1956 which threatened the entire renaissance of good Cahors wines. As a result, it has been able to preserve relatively old vines for our top-of-the-range growths.
Dark and profound with a deep amethyst rim. An intense wine with a large and complex aromatic palette of Gariguette strawberry and raspberry, setting the stage for flavors of aged balsamic, pure cacao and clove. The complexity unfolds with herbal notes of peppermint and cedar but also with floral elements of lilac and violet. This powerful and elegant wine is structured with balanced acidity, minerality, finesse and firm tannins displaying profound density. The long, pure, graceful finish is accented by a touch of black licorice, fresh tobacco, and ripe black plum
