Domaine Gayda

Brugairolles | Languedoc Rousillon - Francia

Located in the foothills of the Pyrenees, surrounded by its vineyards, the Domaine Gayda is a new reality in Languedoc, 25 km southwest of Carcassonne, in the village of Brugairolles. The owners Tim Ford and Anthony Record have joined forces with the winemaker Vincent Chansault to build the new winery in 2004, creating the new face of wine for the region. In the largest wine region in the world, Domaine Gayda is committed to creating wine with provenance and a sense of "being" that is a true reflection of quality and the diversity of Languedoc Roussillon. The new cellar, completed in time for the 2004 vintage, is at the forefront of offering the utmost care for the quality of the grapes. Although the equipment is of the latest technology, the process is very traditional with the meticulous classification of grapes and berries and the slow filling of the tanks by gravity. All operations are carried out by hand and each batch is vinified separately to allow them to express their individual character. Each process is monitored by sensation and taste; not from the computer. The wines are then aged in French oak between 9 months and 2 years, driven by the search for quality, the understanding of each vineyard and respect for this exceptional region is fundamental. Quality wines with the utmost care for the natural environment.

Our quest for taste continues through this new blend. Here we find Macabeu associated with Muscat d’Alexandrie for even more structure and richness whilst keeping its pure freshness.

New Syrah and Cinsault vines for a wine of great freshness and pure pleasure. Also to drink fresh and perfect to accompany aperitifs and simple dishes.

Opaque, perfumed with fragrant black cherry, cassis and spice. Full bodied, intense with countless layers of flavour including blackcurrant, cedar and graphite. Dense fruit on the palate is bound by a structure of fine grained tannins and a lively acidity. This wine shows great depth and character and yet is refined with a long, elegant finish.

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.

60% Grenache Noir, 40% Syrah

Explosion of red fruits on the nose. Soft tannins, smooth and fruity palate. Medium body. Fresh finish.

An aromatic, fruit driven wine with citrus notes on the nose. A rich palate, round and fruity, offering a distinct freshness.
