Jacques Meffre is the son of the
legendary Gabriel Meffre who from a modest start as the owner of an
inherited domain in Gigondas Domaine de la Daysse was able to develope
his business to be one of the biggest owners of vineyards in France. His
empire covered around 900 ha and a quite big negociant firm in Gigondas
The oldest son Jacques Meffre inherited the domains listed below. Today
they are run by Jacques' son Hugues Meffre.
firm's wines are made at Domaine Bois des Dames, which is also the
company's administrative headquarter.
In total, the vineyards make 200+
8 ha of
Chateauneuf du Pape, 20 ha of
Gigondas and 190 ha of
Cotes du Rhone Village Plan de Dieu, Cotes du Rhone Village
and Cotes du Rhone. Originally the
vineyards at Plan de Dieu were planted
almost exclusively with Grenache. Around 1980 they
planted Syrah, which makes up approx. 30% and in
recent years Mourvedre, where the goal is to reach 10%.
There are still
some progress to be made if the single wines will be more than commercial
products, but the owner and his daughter could do it if they focus
on making flagship wines. The potential should be there from the vineyards
of Courthezon and Gigondas.
