Another great wine from Domaine Gayda. Based in Languedoc the estate has the advantage of working with a huge variety of soils and climatic zones that produce some of the most exciting wines in the world. This is a fresh clean cool-climate style of Chardonnay. 25% is fermented and aged for 6 months on its lees in new oak barrels the remainder in stainless steel.
The nose reveals cut lemon and clove with subtle herby notes. Although the palate shows plenty of stoney minerality it is relatively rich and full of soft citrus and tree fruits with a very long spicy finish. There is a lovely creamy feel to the wine a result of the judicious use of oak.
