Gabriel Meffre "Patron Saints"


Appellation d'origine protégée

The mere mention of “Châteauneuf du Pape” evokes a certain idea of quality. Discover here a racy and powerful wine with a long and aromatic finish which will seduce all connoisseurs.

Freshness, minerality and elegant texture are the character and the typicity of this vintage. Harmonious and particularly qualitative thanks to good weather conditions: a humid winter and dry spring combined with a warm to hot end of summer resulted in very healthy sanitary conditions in the vineyard. The maturation was slow but constant up to harvest time.

Grape Varieties: 

This wine is a blend of Grenache and Syrah grapes grown in a stony soil of quartz mixed with sandy red clay.


The grapes are hand-picked and fully destemmed before fermentation. Each grape variety is fermented individually and fermentation/maceration lasts for approximately 4 weeks. After about 12 months of maturing, the different varieties, which were aged partly in oak and partly in vat, are combined to form the final blend before bottling.

Tasting notes: 

A rich, bright ruby colour with a subtle and complex nose of plum. The palate is full and structured with dark-fruit flavours of prune and cherry complemented by smooth, silky tannins on the finish.

Service & food pairing suggestions: 

Enjoy this Châteauneuf du Pape served at 16°C with roasted game, duck fillet or cheese. It can be enjoyed already and up to 10 years of age.

Saint Théodoric is the name of the oldest monument of the village of Châteauneuf du Pape. This Roman chapel still hosts many art exhibitions throughout the year.
