Le Calcifère translated literally in French, means “the one which contains lime”. It refers directly to the limestone content of the soils. Le Calcifère is a traditional wine with a concentrated, new world polish, highlighting the expressions of specific sites within the three select terroirs of the Lot Valley.

Crocus is partnership between Paul Hobbs, internationally renowned winemaker and Malbec specialist, and Bertrand Gabriel Vigouroux, whose family has been producing wine in Cahors, France since the 1880's. Crocus wines are a quest to redefine Malbec in its birthplace, combining old world, ancient terroirs with new world vision.
