Clos Triguedina

Winery in South West France, near Cahors in the Lot Valley.

About the winery
Located in the heart of the Cahors wine region, near Puy l’Évêque (south-west of the town of Cahors), the estate nestles amongst the meanders of the River Lot and covers some 70 hectares in the lush, green Lot Valley. Its soil of clay-and-limestone and siliceous clay, similar to that found in the famed Pomerol wine region, is ideal for wine production of Classed Growth status. The vine grower’s task resides in respecting the special qualities of the soil, the immediate environment and the local climate to create a harmony between man and nature. Sabine and Jean-Luc Baldès, always active and forward-thinking, have realised the increasing importance of tourism in bringing people to their estate and they have decided to develop further the way they welcome visitors. They have therefore sought to work with various bodies in order to promote their engagement with wine tourism: tourism associations, tourist offices, Fédération des Vignerons Indépendants, Qualité Tourisme label.

History & Geography
Étienne Baldès planted his first plots of Cahors vines at Clos Triguedina in 1830, having identified the best terraces of the Lot valley. The vineyard, partially destroyed by phylloxera in 1877, was replanted subsequently. Protected by its micro-climate, it was only partially affected by the severe frosts of 1956. As a result, it has been able to preserve relatively old vines for top-of-the-range growths. René Baldès, a wine-grower of repute, participated in the creation of the first Cahors wine syndicate, as well as the Cahors region’s wine order or confrérie. He was also the region’s most sought-after specialist in grafting vine plants. Jean-Luc Baldès is the 6th generation of the family working the same vines, and producing now a wide range of traditional as well as innovative wines. The estate’s red and white wines receive regular praise in the press and are awarded national and international prizes. Jean-Luc has forged himself a name as "the master of malbec".
