Chateauneuf-du-Pape A.C.

Châteauneuf-du-Pape owes a great part of its notoriety to the arrival of the Popes in Avignon from 1309 until 1403. They decided to choose Châteauneuf as their "summer" residency and developed the vineyards. Since that time, vine-growing has consistently been carried out with great care, giving an example for the constitution of the "Decree of Appellation". The vineyards selected for the elaboration of this Châteauneuf-du-Pape Laurus red have been carefully selected for the quality of their grapes and their terroir with an excellent exposure.

Winery Profile

The Laurus wines, a prestigious range highlighting the know-how of Gabriel Meffre, have been created to represent the greatest attributes of the Côtes du Rhône and Rhône Valley crus. In order to obtain premium quality wines respecting the typicity of every appellation, careful attention is paid to the production and ageing of the wine before, during and after the vinification period. But the great particularity of the Laurus wines comes from the ageing in very special barrels: the Laurus barrel, which has a unique capacity of 275 litres. This allows a progressive oxidation which offers consequently a very elegant texture and taste in perfect harmony with original character of the wine.
