This Crozes Hermitage is made from Syrah grapes grown on soils of granite slopes, pebble stones and terraces of the Rhône river. A perfect blend to offer a textured, smooth and juicy wine.

Gabriel Meffre signature Crozes Hermitage

Throughout the year, the planets were perfectly aligned: no frost, winter rains to replenish the soil and a generous summer sunshine without excessive heat. These ideal climatic conditons resulted in very healthy grapes and an excellent sanitary state. A remarkable vintage as much by the quality of the berries as by the duration of the harvest ! (8 weeks)



100% Syrah.


The Syrah grapes for this Crozes Hermitage are sourced from several terroirs, including the quaternary terraces around Mercurol and the colluvium and sandy plane of "Les Chassis".


The grapes are destemmed and crushed. Fermentation, which is strictly temperature-controlled to preserve the fruit and aromatic freshness, took place in tank and lasted for around 20 days. The wine was then racked off to undergo malo-lactic fermentation before maturing another 8 months in tank. Vegan wine.

Note de dégustation: 

Very elegant with subtly grilled notes, our Crozes Hermitage offers flavours of white pepper and fresh plum in a beautiful finesse. Long and well-balanced on the palate.

Service & accords: 

It pairs nicely with a Basque chicken, cold cuts or also a Piperade (typical Basque dish).
Best served at 14-16°C
Enjoy it now and over the next 6 to 8 years.

We have chosen the name « Saint Pierre » as a reference to the oldest monument of the department, the “Saint Peter tower”, which proudly overlooks the village of Serves sur Rhône, on the Crozes Hermitage appellation.
