Bertrand Gabriel Vigouroux

"The renaissance of an ancient grape variety. Cot, Malbec, Auxerrois: three names for a single vine plant. With its round leaves, airy bunches and dark skin, Malbec is a sure-fire hit for the great vineyards. In 25 years, I have never doubted the exceptional potential of this grape. From Cahors, its birthplace, to Mendoza, Argentina, I have tamed soils and vines and I have turned these Malbec juices into polymorphic and polychromatic, profoundly gourmet wines.
Our twentieth-century cellars are in the château: a visit and tasting you will definitely never forget!"

"Did you say Tuber Melanosporum?" A white marbled intense black, subtle and delicious in all its forms. This is actually the scientific name of the black truffle of south west France. 6 years ago, the Vigouroux family decided to plant a thousand truffle trees on its estate of Haute-Serre near Cahors. We aim to produce, harvest and present the black diamond as we would work on a great vintage. You will find it in all its glory in our menus concocted by our expert chef Julien Poisot."

"Visiting the cave is a special moment because it is rare to observe paintings there are nearly 30,000 years old and so well maintained. There are astonishing figures such as the Black Frieze or the punctuated Horses, but also footprints and stencilled hands. In all, the cave contains nearly 800 motifs including 70 of animals. All these figures are in a unique geological setting. The visit of Pech Merle is a real and unique emotion!"

Bertrand Defois - Director of Tourism and Cultural Development of Pech Merle
