- Other Info:
- Domaine Gayda is situated south East of Carcassonne in the Languedoc region of South West France. Known traditionally for its large area of vineyards producing volume table wines, things have changed rapidly over the last 5 to 10 years. The revolution of change is in full swing and Domaine Gayda is in the centre of the revolution. Fruit quality is at the centre of the winemaking philosophy. Sometimes alcohol levels can be quite high because Gayda always harvest the grapes at full ripeness and maturity to really ensure the fruit-tannins are smooth and rounded. This allows the wonderful flavours to express themselves fully without being withheld or disguised by green or unripe tannins. All of Gayda's viti and vini-culture is performed organically and biodynamically.
Golden colour with reflections of green. A nose that is both floral and fruity gives great complexity, freshness and minerality. Well balanced with a purity of fruit enhanced by its roundness and length. A pleasantly fresh finish.
- 'A lovely fruity and floral nose here showing the wonderful typicity of Chenin. The palate is rich and rounded offering honeyed complexity alongside fresh and vibrant pear flavours. Well balanced and rounded with lively acidity. Fermented in concrete eggs and 500l barrels. 91 points' Georgina Hindle, Decanter
"Very mild and bright fruited. Some pear but masses of acidity. Quite complex. Very youthful. Very gastronomic." Jancis Robinson
