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.

One located in the East Gard area, on the right bank of the Rhône river, where the alluvial terraces, hard limestone, large river stones and sand provide finesse, acidity and elegance. The other in the Vaucluse, on the left bank, where the rich clay and limestone pebbles provide an overall opulence.

Tasting notes:
"Impressive white peach, nectarine, and floral notes all emerge from the 2019 Côtes Du Rhône Laurus Blanc. This medium-bodied, vibrant, beautifully balanced white has classic Southern Rhône richness as well as a notable sense of freshness and purity."
