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
A high-quality vintage thanks to an auspicious combination of the elements: a steady and regular growth cycle, no water stress, disease and pest free with clean, healthy yields. The Summer was hot and dry but, unlike the 2003 vintage, a constant southerly breeze off the Mediterranean sea helped prevent the grapes from drying out.
Harvest on the 28th of September 2015.

This Grenache/Terroir combination is unique within the Gigondas appellation.

Tasting notes: 

"A true blockbuster that competes with the top wines of the vintage is the 2015 Gigondas Hommage À Gabriel’s a naked expression of Grenache that boasts fabulous notes of cassis, lavender, garrigue and crushed flowers. Full-bodied, concentrated and downright decadent, it got more than one “Wow” in the notes and should be snatched up by Grenache lovers!" Jeb Dunnuck, The Wine Advocate, décembre 2016
