This is a refreshing white Côtes-du-Rhône made out of four varieties, Grenache blanc, Roussanne, Clairette and Viognier. It offers us a medium body in a pale lemon coloured wine with ample aromas of pear, apricot, white peaches infused with perfumes of jasmine tea with honeysuckle that interact with the minerality of the different terroirs. Dry and refreshing. Drink now.

Story: The story of the Gabriel Meffre Winery began in 1936, when Gabriel and his wife, both passionate about wine, created their ‘Négociant-Vinificateur’ business in Gigondas.
More than 80 years later, the family business has built on its strong foundations and has established its reputation as a leading Winery in the southern Rhône Valley. With a complementary know-how of ‘Négociant-Eleveur’ and Producer, the Winery is deeply involved in sustainable development and Social Responsibility (CSR). Owner of Domaine de Longue Toque and manages Château Grand Escalion, both follow the rules of Terra Vitis ® and producer of wines in 9 different appellations from North to South Rhône.
Label: Born during the 3rd century in Spain, Saint Vincent has been considered as the patron saint of winegrowers. Given that “Vincent” means “triumphant” in Latin, the choice of this name for our cuvée needs no further explanation ! Traditional shaped bottle, a lighter green colour with the coat of arm on the shoulder. Around the neck, a circle sticker showing the level of sustainability in the Rhône Valley. The label colour is light ivory, pearl and the coat of arm of the Maison in silver. The appellation, vintage and the patrons' names are written on.
