Villa Mon Reve Syrah, Domaine Gayda, 75cl
The wine is named "Villa Mon Rêve" after a little stone cottage situated on the gayda vineyards in La Livinière. The story began many years ago when the previous owner built the cottage for his ailing wife so they could spend what they thought were their last years in this idyllic setting, surrounded by beautiful vineyards. A dream came true when his wife made a miraculous recovery and hence the cottage became "Villa Mon Rève" (the house of my dream). This incredible story behind the name also inspired the wine. Finally, after all these years Gayda now believe they have selected an exceptional north facing Syrah that does justice to this uplifting story of "Villa Mon Rêve".
“Another serious effort, the 2012 Villa Mon Rêve offers stunning purity of fruit to go with impressive notes of blueberries, violets, lilac and hints of chocolate on the nose. Medium to full-bodied, seamless and layered, with sweet tannin, it has an approachable feel, yet I suspect it will evolve gracefully. Enjoy it anytime over the coming 7-8 years.” Jeb Dunnuck, The Wine Advocate Robert Parker 2015, Rating 92 pts
