Georges Vigouroux was the third generation to head up the Vigouroux wine brokerage firm, originally started in 1887. Georges was the first to develop sales of bottled wine in the 1960’s, but his heart was in the vineyards. In 1971 he planted his first vines in Cahors. Since then he has worked ceaselessly to promote the Malbec wines of Cahors, and eventually came to oversee four different domaines. The jewel is Chateau de Mercues, a fairy-tale castle dating back to the 13th century, where he undertook extensive renovations of the building and vineyards in the 1980s. Now it produces arguably the greatest wine in Cahors, and is a renowned Relais and Chateau hotel.
Since 1989 Georges’ son, Bertrand-Gabriel, has worked alongside his father. With a training in oenology and management he brought a new level of attention and refinement to the vineyard and to cellar techniques. In 2000, he took over the daily running of the firm from his father.
