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.


This unique wine gets its character from its specific terroir: round pebbles give the aromatic strength while clayey limestone brings finesse and beautiful elegance.

The Grenache grapes come from the sector of "La Crau", a large Quaternary terrace covered with large pebble stones, giving the wine structure and body.
The Syrah grapes are grown on clay-limestone soils from the Cretaceous period, bringing great elegance and finesse to the wine.

Age of vines & yield: 40 years on average with Grenaches vines of more than 80 years. 31 hl/ha.

Grape Varieties: 65% Grenache, 35% Syrah

Tasting notes:
"Offers an alluring smoldering edge, with singed alder, tobacco and mocha notes working together to augment the core of steeped black currant and black cherry fruit. A licorice root echo runs through the finish, imparting an extra twinge of grip."
