You know that feeling when you visit a friend you haven't seen for a while and their son answers the door, but it's not the little boy you remember, but a confident, self-assured young adult. That's how it felt tasting this vintage of Gayda's Chemin de Moscou, a wine that has really come of age. It's always been good, but never as comfortable in its own skin, nor as sure of its own identity as it is now. Gone is the brooding, introverted youth and in its place appears a refined take on the classic southern blend of Syrah, Grenache and Cinsault, with glossy, silky fruit and ultra-polished tannins. Drink this sensual beauty instead of an ungainly Chateauneuf-du-Pape, because you get all the beautiful flavours, but held in a much more elegant frame. 14^% alc. Drink now-2025

Jancis Robinson: "60% Syrah, 35% Grenache, 5% Cinsault. Name taken from a path near the winery but the fruit comes from far and wide (hence the wide appellation, presumably). I have notes only on the preceding vintage when the Syrah came from several Roussillon sites, La Livinière and round the winery; the Grenache from Tautavel and La Livinière; and the Cinsault from La Livinière. The wine was aged for 21 months in oak, some of it (for Syrah) new. 

Deep crimson. Rich and refined. Not overdone and very appetising. A hint of salt and treacle. Very suave and polished. Quite rich but very appetising too. Good to see this important wine evolving with the times. Good freshness." 17 points
