Delicious and savoury from day one : this is the commitment of our Gabriel Meffre "Signature" wines.This Gigondas is a blend of Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre. The vineyards are situated on marl limestone deposits of the Jurassic and Cretaceous periods, with a mix of sand and clay of the Tertiary era. The climate is Mediterranean, significantly influenced by the dry Mistral wind, a high level of annual sunshine and low rainfall, concentrated mostly in the Spring and Fall seasons.
A deep aubergine robe, an intense black-fruit nose of plums and dark cherry and a full, intense presence on the palate. A thread of garrigue (rosemary, thyme, juniper) spice runs from start to finish, which is long and generous.
This Gigondas marries beautifully with stews (Boeuf Bourguignon, Rabbit Ragou), grilled steak and soft, ripe cheese. Given its richness, it is highly recommended to serve at a cool temperature (16° to 18° C). Can be appreciated now for its youthfull livelyness or enjoyed over the next 6 to 8 years.
