2021 Syrah Domaine Gayda
Medium colour. Quite firm peppery fruit on the palate and a youthful palate with firm fruit. Nicely balanced. Rosemary George MW (May 2022)
*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles (or 9l equivalent) of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits, Sweet Wine or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
Red fruit and hints of spice on the nose. Plenty of structure. Soft tannins give this medium bodied wine a classic Syrah palate.Winemaker's notes (May 2022)
In a little under 20 years, the team at Domaine Gayda have put the slightly unfashionable AOC of Malepere well and truly on the map. Based some 30 kilometres south of the pretty medieval walled city of Carcassonne, they set out on their journey to create an estate that seeks to do things a little differently from the crowd.
They bottle the majority of their wines as Pay's d'Oc IGP, to avoid the constraints of the appellation.
The Figure Libre Chenin Blanc & Cabernet Franc are the creation of winemaker Vincent Chansault, taking inspiration from his time making wine in South Africa and the Loire Valley.
You get a real sense of adventure in all of the wines, from the serious Chemin de Moscou (taken from the street name of the domaine, we hasten to add) a blend of the very best barrels of Syrah, Grenache and Cinsault, all the way down to the vibrant and juicy Sauvignon Blanc & Syrah under the T'Air D'Oc labels. You get a feel of the new and old world colliding to create thoroughly modern yet delicious wines. These are immensely enjoyable wines from one of the most dynamic estates in Languedoc-Roussillon.
