    Georges Vigouroux, France - Other regions
    Image of winery
    For four generations, the “black wine” has been flowing through the Vigouroux family’s veins. If the passing down of the winemaking know-how is important in viticulture, the passion for Malbec is even more remarkable in heredity, guiding the family since 1887 on the historic Cahors vineyards and beyond, in search of a terroir/grape variety symbiosis.

    Owners of approximatively 150 hectares of vineyards in the Southwest France, the Vigouroux family are the specialists in France when it comes to producing Malbec wines. With focus on the black wine since 1887, their four wineries and Chateaux offer various styles of wines, from the plateau to the different terraces…

    A know-how practiced for several generations and an expertise in the Malbec grape variety, historic chateaux, a high gross rate of their brands, a qualitative distribution, completed by an exceptional agritourism offer, Bertrand-Gabriel Vigouroux is open to the world, committed to maintaining his roots and regional values.

    Within the Southwest of France, this is the one region outside of Argentina that is today almost exclusively dependent on Malbec. Locally the variety is called Cot, and makes a dense, earthy and black fruit dominant red wine. Both the Atlantic Ocean and Mediterranean both have a strong influence on the climate of this region.

    Known for its big, bold flavors and supple texture, Malbec is most famous for its runaway success in Argentina. However, the variety actually originated in Bordeaux, where it historically contributed color and tannin to blends. After being nearly wiped out by a devastating frost in 1956, it was never significantly replanted, although it continued to flourish under the name Côt in nearby Cahors. A French agronomist who saw great potential for the variety in Mendoza’s hot, high-altitude landscape, brought Malbec to Argentina in 1868. But it did not gain its current reputation as the country's national grape until a surge in popularity in the late 20th century.

    In the Glass

    Malbec typically expresses deep flavors of blackberry, plum and licorice, appropriately backed by aromas of freshly turned earth and dense, chewy tannins. In warmer, New World regions, such as Mendoza, Malbec will be intensely ripe, and full of fruit and spice. From its homeland in Cahors, its rusticity shines; dusty notes and a beguiling bouquet of violets balance rich, black fruit.

    Perfect Parings

    Malbec’s rustic character begs for flavorful dishes, like spicy grilled sausages or the classic cassoulet of France’s Southwest. South American iterations are best enjoyed as they would be in Argentina: with a thick, juicy steak.

    Sommelier Secret

    If you’re trying to please a crowd, Malbec is generally a safe bet. With its combination of bold flavors and soft tannins, it will appeal to basically anyone who enjoys red wine. Malbec also wins bonus points for affordability, as even the most inexpensive examples are often quite good.
