Quick Overview

Delicious and savoury from day one: this is the commitment of Gabriel Meffre "signature" wines. For each appellation, and in keeping with the characteristics of the vintage, its know-how is recognisable through its experienced blending of "terroirs" and grape varieties and through its careful maturing, favouring purity of fruit and silkyness of texture. Already enjoyable in their first year after bottling, the Crus also have good aging potential.


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 its vision. The perfect combination of grape variey & soil, the precise maturing process in unique 275l. French oak "Laurus" barrels refines the structure, producing complex wines, with plenty of character, beautiful elegance and a long ageing potential.

Details

The careful selection of terroirs with specific altitudes, climates and orientations gives to its Gigondas Laurus a complex balance between finesse and minerality, richness and spicy notes

Terroir:
The Grenache vines are planted in the gravelly terraces bordering the Ouvèze river(Quaternary Period) in the western part of the appellation which provides richness, fruit and spicy notes. The Syrah vines are located in the Pourra sector, in the heart of the Dentelles de Montmirail mountains. This is the eastern part of the appellation where the soil is primarily limestone and marl from the Cretaceous Period at around 400 m. in altitude, providing freshness and minerality.

Age of vines & yield: Between 20 and 50 years. 31hl/ha.

Grape Varieties: 55% Grenache - 45 % Syrah

Tasting notes:
Bright violet. A highly expressive bouquet displays mineral-driven red and dark berry, exotic spice and mocha scents, and a peppery nuance adds spicy lift. Sweet, broad and penetrating on the palate, offering Chambord, cherry pie and bitter chocolate flavors that tighten up slowly on the back half. Concentrated but energetic as well, displaying resonating spice and floral notes on a very long, energetic, youthfully tannic finish.
