About This Wine...
“Côtes du Rhône hero” Tomás Clancy, the Sunday Business Post, 6th May 2018
“a well-priced, profound wine… exhibiting lusty, earthy Grenache in all its tar, spice and tannin glory. It is ready to come and play its part with flame-grilled pork and even a sweeter bit of fillet” Tomás Clancy on summer BBQ wines in the Sunday Business Post of 9th July.

The Meffre family has been making wine in Gigondas since the 15th century. In 2007 Jean-Pierre was joined on the estate by his son in law, Yves Carré de Lusançay. This is a traditional estate, in the best sense: no irrigation and everything done by hand. The wines are powerful and full bodied with pure, ripe fruits. Prices remain very modest in comparison to some of their peers.
