About This Wine...
“Estates like this one offer complex, savoury grenache, syrah and mourvedre wines from 100 year-old vines made in a meticulous, old-fashioned, polished and ripe style that may be a little un-hip, but are brilliantly priced nonetheless” Tomás Clancy, The Sunday Business Post 11th November 2018
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.
