The 2017 Gigondas from the team at Meffre is smoking good and well worth seeking out. Notes of black raspberries, strawberries, cassis, crushed flowers, and ground pepper all emerge from the glass, and it’s medium to full-bodied, beautifully balanced, and seamless on the palate. It’s well worth seeking out and will shine for a decade” Jeb Dunnuck – September 2019

Detailed information


This vintage took place in weather conditions marked by high temperatures and a lack of rainfall. The harvest was particularly early. If the volumes were low, the quality is present with a vintage of very nice outfit. The berries, healthy, smaller, were concentrated with good balance and very pleasant aromas.
