Domaine Gayda Figure Libre Freestyle Rouge

Domaine Gayda Figure Libre Freestyle Rouge is part of an ambitious range of wines designed to shake up conventions and break new ground for expressing the inherent style of Languedoc and Rousillon. Turning its back on appellation rules, it reflects a desire to think outside the box and bring together grape varieties that would otherwise never have met in the same bottle.

Ruby red colour with purple highlights. It offers a vibrant and expressive nose of red and black fruits, pepper and spice. Bold and spicy. Rich dark bramble and raspberry fruit flavours with pepper, liquorice and earthy spices. Full-bodied with an expansive mouthfeel, integrated tannins and a long, silky finish.

55% Syrah, 25% Grenache Noir, 10% Mourvedre and 10% Carignan. The grapes are from a variety of organic vineyards in Roussillon Minervois/La Livinière and Gaydas' own estate in Malepère. After hand-picking, sorting and de-stemming, the grapes are fed by gravity to stainless steel vats. Traditional vinification follows with fermentation in stainless steel vats at a controlled temperature for 10–30 days. Each variety and terroir goes through vinification separately, without additional sulphurs. Ageing for 9 months on lees with batonnages in a variety of oak barrels. Blending the best barrels from each terroir, then ageing another 2 months in vats. No fining, light filtration and bottling at the domaine.
