We called it “Figure Libre” because we have chosen the freedom of creation and expression, combining the subtleness of the Loire with the bold character of the Languedoc. Away from the rigours of the appellation, in 2004 we planted the grape varieties which we felt would be the best suited, those most able to reveal the expression and the qualities of our Brugairolles sandstone terroir. Cabernet Franc and Chenin Blanc, rarely grown in the region, originate from the Loire Valley, home of Winemaker Vincent Chansault
DOMAINE GAYDA FIGURE LIBRE CABERNET FRANC IGP PAYS D’OC
An extremely elegant wine with great depth and finish.
Opaque, perfumed with fragrant black cherry, cassis and spice.
Full bodied, intense with countless layers of flavour including blackcurrant, cedar and graphite. Dense fruit on the palate is bound by a structure of fine grained tannins and a lively acidity. This wine shows great depth and character and yet is refined with a long, elegant finish.
20% in new Oak, 20% in wooden vat and 60% in 1 and 2 year old Oak barrels – The wines are racked and bottled according to the phases of the moon and on fruit or root days.
