A tasting event full of some delicious wines

That's a Wrap

If you want the epitome of freethinking consider Domaine Gayda’s Figure Libre, or Free Style ($22). We enjoyed the 2010, a wine based on 62% Syrah blended with Grenache, Mourvedre, Carignan, and Cabernet Sauvignon. A flat out exhilarating wine, it spoke to me of crisp, cool Syrah with the other varieties contributing a foundation for its flavors and fine structural components. It’s a wine that makes you stop and think and take another stop, then another, then another. Truly a remarkable wine, and one that would easily cost double the price if it had a more prestigious appellation attached to it.
The wines of the Pay d’Oc are becoming more and more difficult to ignore. I certainly can’t take them for granted any longer, and you shouldn’t either. Don’t take my word for it. Look who’s importing some of these great wines and ask them.
