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 correctness 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(...)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.”
Millésime 2019 THE BUYER (DK) "The ‘Collection’ range is all about varietal typicity and, frankly, this could be Viognier’s calling card. “A blend of different vineyards and different levels of ripeness,” says Chansault, a beguiling orange blossom nose leads into ripe apricot, peach and mango, beautifully balanced by juicy lemon acidity."
