Press and Awards

Millésime 2020 -15.5 - Jancis Robinson "Clear nose, like the clean notes of a flute. Fresh and well•balanced, with all the varietal correccness you could possibly ask for from 100% Viognier from Languedoc: ripe peach, almond, bay leaf. Very well• proportioned in terms of fruit, acidity and alcohol - not easy to achieve with Viognier. But Jacks excirement and grip. Not what I expected to wrire about a Gayda wine. (TC)"
91/100 Decanter (FB) “Textbook Viognier character from innovative Languedoc producer Gayda - Unusual in a basic varietal range. Apricot, peach, a touch of mango muskiness, perfumed and balanced with a surprisingly long finish. Well priced and widely available. Just the wine you need with a Friday night Korma.”
La Revue du Vin de France. « ...celle-ci fait figure de grand cru ! Avec de beaux parfums de thé earl gray et une bouche parfumée, digeste et équilibrée, ce blanc se place comme la meilleure expression de ce cépage dans cette catégorie. »
