For quite some time now, the Gigondas Origine of the Domaine Saint-Gayan has been one of the best wines of its famous appellation. Old vines and good plots in the northern part of Gigondas are the basis for this wine full of character. The soils are partly sandy, but often stony, with a high proportion of lime marl. Grenache dominates this cuvée, but Syrah and Mourvèdre also play an important role. Incredibly dense and creamy, with gentle tannins and soft texture. Ripe, dark berries, plum confit, dried herbs, olive tapenade, cocoa, liquorice root. Aged in concrete tanks and 600l barrels. Filled unfiltered and matured in the bottle. Perfect with lamb or game, but also with braised peppers or dark chocolate.

The Domaine Saint-Gayan of the Meffre family from Gigondas has been making wine for quite some time now - since 1703 to be precise. Today's owners Jean-Pierre and Martine Meffre make wonderfully unagitated, but exemplarily powerful, harmonious and spicy wines on the southern Rhône. Their largest vineyard holdings are located in the famous sites around the small town of Gigondas, in addition to plots in the neighbouring villages of Sablet, Rasteau, Châteauneuf-du-Pâpe and the Côtes-du-Rhône appellation. It is striking that the Meffres can build on a respectable stock of very old vines. The Grenache vines, in particular, are sometimes over a hundred years old. The yield is thus reduced in a natural way, the wines gain in concentration and depth. Common to all their wines is that they all have had enough time to develop. They mature in concrete and large wooden barrels, are bottled unfiltered and are only put on sale after a generous bottle ageing. In this way, the Meffres ensure that the wines are always ready to drink and, in the best case, achieve a high degree of harmony in taste.
