Domaine Saint Gayan Gigondas Cuvée In Nomine Patris 2019

Very old vines: 100% Grenache

Parcel selected old vines up to 110 years old. Stones, clay and limestone on light slopes around the domaine.

Taken from the Latin Roman Catholic liturgy ‘In Nomine Patris’ (‘In the name of the Father…’), this Grenache Noir-based Gigondas is made from extremely low-yielding vines on a small plot with an average age of 100 years old. Intense ripe berry and plum fruit predominate with lashings of pepper and cloves. It has amazing length and depth of flavour and will age for a decade at least.


Shipping costs are calculated per box of 6 bottles. Each box can contain a mixed selection of wines.

Producer profile

Roger Meffre commenced the bottling of his Gigondas wines in 1956 and later, his son Jean-Pierre and daughter-in-law, Martine commenced bottling of their Rasteau, Sablet and Côtes du Rhône wines. In 1987 they acquired a very small parcel of vines in the north-eastern section of Châteauneuf-du-Pape via a very a beneficial swap of table wine land near the Ouveze river that the Châteauneuf-du-Pape owner wanted to buy for his son to develop as a campsite! St Gayan cultivates a total of 34ha (84 acres) of vineyards with 16ha in Gigondas, 5ha in Rasteau, 1ha in Sablet, 0.75ha in Châteauneuf-du-Pape, 10ha in Côtes du Rhône and 1 ha under the IGP designation. The Gigondas parcels are spread across different sites but mostly on the northern sector of the appellation, with parcels on the raised plateau of marne, limestone and sand, and parcels on the more limestone-rich slopes of the Dentelles de Montmirail hills. The oldest grenache vines are over 100 years old and reserved for the cuvées “Fontmaria” and “In Nomine Patris”. Their main Gigondas cuvée “Origine” is one of my benchmark Gigondas wines – fine tannins, dried red fruits, wonderful complexity and a long, lingering finish held together by a delicate minerality.
