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.


The Crozes Hermitage Laurus is made of two complementary terroirs of the appellation : to the North, in the village of Gervans, granitic soils and, to the South, in the village of Mercurol, clay soils covered with small pebbles. This results in a very elegant wine.

Plots were selected on the two maine terroirs of the AOP: - Mercurol in the south, with its ancient alluvial terraces of the Rhône River providing structure and fruit (100m of altitude - South/Southwest exposure)
- "Les Baties" vineyard, at 200m in alt, farther North. Here the soil are granite based with sand mixed with kaolin, contributing with freshness and minerality.

Age of vines & yield: 30 and 40 years on average- 36hl/ha
Grape Varieties: 100% Syrah

Tasting notes:
"A classy Syrah, the 2018 Crozes-Hermitage Laurus offers a saturated purple color as well as impressive notes of blackberries, spice box, dried flowers, and earth, with even a touch of minerality. Medium to full-bodied, nicely textured, and balanced, it's a classic Crozes-Hermitage that will keep for 7-8 years, if not longer. "
