The name Gigondas comes from the Latin word "Jucunditas", which means "joy". It was originally the name of a small gallo-roman village renowned as a holiday location.

The "Appellation of Origin" dates from 1971 and covers 1200 hectares of vineyards at the foot of the Dentelles de Montmirail, and is one of the crus of the southern Rhône Valley.

Winery Tasting Notes


A deep, intense purple with a brilliant robe.


The nose is full and intense with notes of ripe plum and blackberry wrapped in a delicate veil of vanilla from the oak ageing in Laurus barrels.


The palate confirms the nose with a rich, textured mouth feel, ripe silky tannins and a long, spicy finish. Balance, richness and persistence characterise the Laurus Gigondas.


The wine can age well for 10 to 12 years.

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.
