Vineyard Info

The story of the Gabriel Meffre Winery began in 1936, when Gabriel and his wife, both passionate about wine, created their ‘Négociant-Vinificateur’ business in Gigondas. More than 80 years later, the family business has built on its strong foundations and has established its reputation as a leading Winery in the southern Rhone Valley.

LAURUS means ‘Laurel’ in Latin, a Roman symbol of excellence. Here excellence is all about “terroir”: the grapes are grown on parcels selected for their ability to express the very best of each Appellation. The term “terroir” encompasses a soil, a climate and people. Here it is expressed through sustainable partnerships with wine-growers who share our vision. The maturing process in 275-litre Laurus barrels refines the structure, producing complex wines with plenty of character and good cellaring potential.

The LAURUS CHATEAUNEUF DU PAPE is made from a selection of two terroirs to achieve a fine balance between strength and elegance: - Rolled pebbles in the "La Crau" sector, on quaternary terraces for the Grenache grapes. - Clay and limestone soils from the Cretaceous period and soft sandstone from the Miocene period for the Syrah grapes.
