Wine maker notes
The Lot river has run through Cahors for eons, shaping distinct soil types in each of the valley’s terraces. Fruit is selected from choice blocks within three Vigouroux properties located on different terraces, each with its own microclimate and terroir: Plateau: Above the valley, limestone rocks-on iron-rich red clays over calcareous flagstone and patches of blue clay. Enhances the finesse, length, and red fruit notes. 4th Terrace - Formed from eroded materials from the plateau just above it, a combination of silt, limestone and clay. Components of volume, sucrosity and black fruits. 3rd Terrace -: Just below the 4th terrace, composed of ancient alluvial deposits of clay and silt. This fruit contributes components to the structure, with floral notes and tannins.

Crocus is a partnership between internationally renowned winemaker and malbec specialist Paul Hobbs, and Bertrand Vigouroux, whose family has been producing wine in Cahors, France since the 1860s. Paulís work with malbec in Mendoza, Argentina brought world-wide attention to the variety, and provided inspiration for new styles to emerge. The Vigouroux family has over 150 years of experience with malbec in Cahors, where the grape has flourished since Roman times. Crocus blends a single malbec clone grown on three historic Vigouroux family properties on distinct terraces of the Lot River Valley.
