From gravelly terraces
to a listed site,
the Malbec wine
of Château de Mercuès
is nobly born

When Georges Vigouroux, winemaker in Cahors, acquired the Château de Mercuès in 1983, not only did he decide to turn it into one of the finest castles/hotels in France, but he also turned it into a prestigious wine estate with creating a 32 hectares vineyard and an underground winery and ageing cellar under the castle terrace.
The first grapes were harvested in the autumn of 1987. Since this year, each vintage has contributed to make Château de Mercuès famous worldwide as a flagship of the Malbec grape and a great vineyard of the Cahors Appellation, member of the exclusive "Grands Vins Seigneurs" Association.
