Congratulations to all at Domaine Gayda; 94/100 for their ‘Chemin de Moscou’ 2008! Voted 4th best Red wine in the Languedoc Roussillon and 37th best in France in the SIAL 2010 Best Buy Awards.

The JN Taste Team visited Domaine Gayda back in March 2010; welcomed warmly by Gayda’s charismatic wine maker, Vincent Chansault. We were massively impressed with their vineyard management and wines. I loved the Tair d’Oc Sauvignon Blanc and Syrah but for a wine that truly reflects the potential of the Languedoc it has to be Chemin de Moscou. A blend of Syrah, Grenache and Cinsault. Its intensely dark aromas (dark chocolate, spice, plums, tobacco) and full tannins make this wine perfect with big food flavours this winter.

JN Top Tip: For best results decant this one a few hours prior to drinking, it’s big and could benefit from a few hours on the naughty step…
