Domaine Gayda makes some excellent wines, with this perhaps its best. A blend of 70% Syrah, 24% Grenache and 6% Cinsault, this is loaded with meaty, spicy dark fruits and a lingering violet perfume. Aged in a mix of new barrels and old demi-muids, this spends 21 months in wood, adding finesse to the tannins. A fine wine, which shows what IGP Pays d'Oc is capable of. Drink 2020-2025

      Tasting Notes
      Domaine Gayda Chemin de Moscou 2017, 75cl

      Chemin de Moscou comes from old vines of Syrah - 70%, Grenache - 26% and 4% Cinsault grown on the estate's terraced vineyards which have been cultivated since Roman times. 21 months in French oak : A third of the Syrah in ‘Burgundy’ new oak for 9 months.

      21 months in French oak : A third of the Syrah in ‘Burgundy’ new oak for 9 months. Grenache and Cinsault in 500 litre ‘demi-muids’ and 2000 litre ‘foudres’ for 9 months. Blending of the best barrels of each variety followed by a further 12 months maturation of the final blend in the same barrels

      Deep purple, almost opaque in colour with an expressive nose of black fruits, pepper, cinnamon, spice and violets. A seductive palate of dark hedgerow fruits, very open and welcoming with an explosion of fruit and spice. Mineral undertones.

      We are delighted to announce that Challenge Millésime Bio 2018 have awarded a Gold Medal to our Chemin de Moscou 2015. This is a significant recognition of the hard work, passion and dedication of Vincent and his team in creating this award winning organic wine.

      "Certified organic. 70% Syrah, 26% Grenache, 4% Cinsault. Low-yielding vines, hand-picked, hand-graded selection, destemmed. Traditional fermentation with two weeks' post-fermentation maceration. 21 months in French oak: a third of the Syrah in new burgundy barrels for nine months, Grenache and Cinsault in 500-litre demi-muids and 2,000-litre foudres for nine months; blended and then back into the same barrels for 12 months. TA 3.1 g/l, pH 3.65, RS 0.4 g/l, total SO 60 mg/l. Bottled 4 November 2019.
      Rich cherry and chocolate nose. Glorious stuff. The fruit sings opera – full-throated, from the depths of its soul, triumphant, full of glory. Holding every note, high and low, with absolute precision and purity. Ripe, velvety cherry and damson fruit on the palate, mocha, sweet souk spices, a touch of orange peel and a now-it’s-there-now-it-isn’t drift of old mahogany furniture that has been lovingly hand-polished a thousand times. And then this astounding freshness that fills the mouth from beginning to end. It’s so generous and open-armed that you could almost drink this without realising how complex it is, and how extraordinarily beautiful the texture is – it feels like a rose petal. 14.5%.
      Drink 2020 – 2024.
