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 (Gabriel Meffre)
The oldest son Jacques Meffre inherited the domains listed below. Today they are run by Jacques' son Hugues Meffre.
The firm's wines are made at Domaine Bois des Dames, which is also the company's administrative headquarter.
In total, the vineyards make  200
+ ha; 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.
