Gigondas Hommage à Gabriel Meffre

Appellation d'origine protégée

AOP Gigondas – An exceptional Cuvée, only produced in great vintages.
A beautiful tribute to Mr Gabriel Meffre, the founder of our Winery.

Gigondas Hommage
Cool Spring, hot and dry Summer, late harvest date, small crop, particularly Grenache due to poor flower set which resulted in more concentrated juice than usual. The resulting wines are rich and vibrant with great depth and complexity, and structured for long-term aging.

Gigondas Hommage à Gabriel Meffre


Grenache (98%)


Micro selection of 4ha of the oldest Grenaches of the Domaine (60 to 100 years old) on sandy marl of the Oligocène period. This Grenache/Terroir combination is unique within the Gigondas appellation.


Hand-harvested. Three grape sortings, destemming, 1-week fermentation with a daily «rack-and-return» followed by a 3-week maceration. An 18-month aging period in cement tank, with no oak-ageing, to enhance the complex terroir elements. Bottled at the estate.
1500 bottles produced.

Note de dégustation: 

Dark and brooding for an almost 100% Grenache, opaque and richly textured. A broad aromatic pallet with a mix of plum, «garrigue» spice and cacao. The mouthfeel is silky and dense with smooth yet concentrated tannins and a bright, lively acidity on the finish.

Service & accords: 

Serve at 16-18 ° C - Open one hour before serving.

“A blockbuster 2010; a full, deep, impressively endowed Gigondas that should evolve effortlessly for 15 or more years.” Jeb Dunnuck – Robert Parker/The Wine Advocate
