Clos Triguedina Tasting - BND Wines

Date: Apr 20/18, Fri     Time: 16:30:00-19:00:00     Style: Drop-In

Jean-Luc Baldès, the master of Malbec, celebrates his 40th vintage at Clos Triguedina and we are pleased to be showing them in Toronto on April 20th.

Cahors vineyard’s leading figure, Jean-Luc Baldès devotes himself to the valorization and quality of the Terroir, producing the famous “Black Wine”; a wine harvested from the most prestigious parcel in the appellation and produced with ancient practices. Not keen on following the whims of the fashion, he has two goals: to make elegant wines and always looking to “Push Cahors upward”. He aspires to attain “Grand Cru” recognition in the Cahors appellation.

Winemaker of the year in 2017 by Le Guide Hachette, we are pleased to be showing his current releases as well as some library wines. New vintages as well as many back vintages all produced by Baldès will be available for ordering.

Wine List:
VIOGNIER CHARDONNAY 2015
50% Chardonnay, 50% Viognier Jean-Luc Baldès reproduces the Moon Wine (Vin de Lune) of the 17th century, when the peasants picked the grapes at night in order to conceal part of the harvest from the local landowner, therefore, paying him less taxes. Today, the grapes are harvested early in the morning to preserve the freshness of the fruit.
