"A good and reliable blend from Domaine Gayda which shows good crunchy fruit and a firm backbone, yet has plenty of upfront available fruit" - Fiona Beckett, Wine & Food Journalist.

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.
