Black cherry colour with a subtle and complex nose of ripe strawberry and spices. The palate is well structured with black fruits (prunes) and spicy aromas complemented by silky tannins. Good aromatic persistence on black fruit.
Wine Spectator 91 points - A sappy, kirsch-filled version, featuring cherry paste, red licorice and roasted apple wood notes that drive through the finish. Best from 2014 through 2024. 1,133 cases made.-JM  (Oct 15 2013)

Vinous 90 points - Vivid red. High-pitched, pinot-like aromas of raspberry, zesty minerals and fresh flowers, with a spicy topnote. Silky and sharply focused, offering energetic red fruit flavors and a hint of orange pith. Finishes sweet and long, with firm grip, smooth tannins and a lingering floral note.  (Jan 2014)

Wine maker notes
This Chateauneuf du Pape 1/2Saint-Theodoric» wine highlights the Gabriel Meffre 1/2savoir-faire» in producing expressive and elegant wines, truly representing the Southern Rhone Valley terroirs. Composition This wine is a blend of Grenache, Mourvedre, Syrah and Cinsault grapes grown into a quartz stone soil mixed with sandy red clay. The climate is Mediterranean, hot and dry in summer, cool in winter. Vinification The grapes are hand-picked and there is no full destemming. Each grape variety ferments separately to preserve fruits aromas. The fermentation on skins lasts for around 4 weeks. The wine is racked off and it undergoes malolactic fermentation. Grape varieties are aged separately in vats and new barrels for 12 months. Then the wine is blended and bottled.

The story of the Gabriel Meffre Winery began in 1936, when Gabriel and his wife, both passionate about wine, created their ‘Negociant-Vinificateur’ business in Gigondas. Almost 80 years later, the family business has built on its strong foundations and has established its reputation as a leading Winery in the southern Rhone Valley, with the complementary know-how linked to being both ‘Negociant-Eleveur’ and Producer, recognised for the quality of its wines. The Winery has innovated and grown over the years. Now, it encompasses all aspects of the wine business. It owns the Domaine de Longue Toque Estate in Gigondas - 27 ha of AOP Gigondas, Vacqueyras, and Cotes du Rhone Villages Plan de Dieu - and manages the Chateau Grand Escalion Vineyard in the Costieres de Nimes winegrowing area - 44 ha of AOP Costieres de Nimes and Varietal Wines. Both vineyards apply the principles of reasoned viticulture according to the Terra Vitis® charter. The Winery perpetuates the spirit and traditions of its founders through strong values: a passion for wine, respect for the environment and terroirs, a spirit of innovation, and knowledge-sharing which fosters the creation of close and lasting ties with its winemaking partners. The Winery is also very much involved in the local community. It has been a major sponsor of the “Festival d’Avignon” (theater festival) since 2011, partners numerous events in Gigondas and regularly displays the work of local artists in its Wine Cellar. Since 2009, the story continues with Eric Brousse, CEO of the Winery and a renowned figure in the world of wine, together with Etienne Maffre, Assistant Managing Director, who arrived in 1996 as Technical Director. They are pursuing the work begun by their predecessors whilst giving the business new impetus in certain key directions: strong growth in its export markets (our wines are present in 50 countries) thanks to quality brands adapted to consumers’ needs; consolidation of the French market, particularly in the on-trade sector. Today, the Winery is firmly established as a reference in southern Rhone Valley wines.
