2020 Viognier, Domaine Gayda, Pays d’Oc, France
£10.70 £9.18 per bottle
£110.16 for a case of 12 bottles
Regular readers know I am very suspicious of the sneaky Viognier grape, which always promises to deliver perfumed elegance and grace but so often lapses into pantomime tropical notes coupled with soapiness. Gayda is a precision-cut Viognier with a thrillingly demure peachy nose and a lithe, willowy frame. More supermodel than cartoon character, this is a delicious, layered white with true elegance and ambition and I would usher it into the space normally reserved for Chardonnay this month.
