AOP Gigondas – An exceptional Cuvée, only produced in great vintages. A beautiful tribute to Mr Gabriel Meffre, the founder of our Winery.
Selection of 4 parcels of the oldest Grenaches of the Domaine (more than 60 years old) from the area of "Petit Montmirail" (alt. 200m), on sandy marl of the Oligocène period. This Grenache/Terroir combination is unique within the Gigondas appellation.
Hand-harvested. 1-week fermentation with a daily «rack-and-return» followed by a 3-week maceration. 35% of the cuvée is aged 18 months in ½ muids. Bottled at the estate.
1500 bottles produced.
Sexy and voluptuous ; Full-bodied, beautifully concentrated and with a rich, layered texture.
Serve at 16-18°C and open a few hours before drinking.
Will pair with great gastronomic dishes.

“I continue to be blown away by the Gigondas Hommage à Gabriel Meffre release, and if you get a chance to taste this beauty, don’t miss it.” Jeb Dunnuck – Robert Parker/The Wine Advocate
