Domaine Gayda Chemin de Moscou
This was a gift from a wine contact after a tasting and had been sitting under the stairs for a couple of years - when I previously tried it, I had felt it would benefit from further aging.
Dark inky purple, aromas of dark fruits, leather and gaminess.
Sweet ripe dark berries, sweet spices and dried green herbs - a lithe tannic grip and a warming finish.
Drinking very nicely now with plenty more years ahead of it.
Match with venison steak, pigeon or pheasant.
Available (newer vintages) from Cambridge Wine Merchants priced £21.99.
